Lowland tapir

/Lowland tapir

Broadly distributed across most of mainland South America east of the Andes, from northern Colombia extending to southern Brazil, northern Argentina and Paraguay, including throughout Venezuela and the Guyana’s, eastern Peru, and northern and eastern Bolivia.

Tapirs love wallowing and splashing in mud or water and can use the trunk to act as a snorkel in deep water.
