Baird's tapir in the mud

Here is a link to a couple of photos on the TravelPod blog showing a Baird's tapir cooling off in the mud in Corcovado National Park, Costa Rica. It's one of Kendra Bauer's radio-collared tapirs. Although it's an adventure to get there, this is one place that tapirs are often seen in the wild by visitors.

Here is a link to Kendra's web site. I found some interesting info on this page. I thought it was particularly worth reading because we are just beginning to learn some of the basic biological information about tapirs through projects like this one.
