Two tapir species in one - enjoy!

There are so so so many mistakes in photos and literature regarding tapirs, the mistakes could fill a book. In fact, Stefan Seitz (IUCN/SSC Tapir Specialist Group Member and Editor of Tapir Conservtion newsletter) based a large part his PhD thesis on mistakes people make when looking at tapirs. It's an interesting topic and someday I'll pull my examples out of the files. Meanwhile, this is a very interesting link. Nice drawing, but two species in one!

While I'm at it, I enjoyed this blog of pictures of the Pantanal in Brazil including a couple of interesting posts with tapirs. Take a look at the March 12 post. You'll have to scroll down. Actually, this link will bring up all three tapir posts. In post 2 (March 17) I love the fox trotting after the tapir!
