Amazingly, this new species of tapir was actually hunted by Theodore Roosevelt in 1912 with a specimen from his exploits still resting in the American Museum of Natural History in New York to this day. At the time of his hunt, Roosevelt wrote that the local hunters called the tapir a "distinct kind."


So he went ahead and shot it anyway. Rolling Eyes

How times have changed. Very Happy

I was taken to see the first tapir born in captivity at Chester Zoo. It was on the telly an' everything. Cool
