When I went to the zoo I was really lost as to what this was and so was everyone else. Looking at it, people were guessing it was an anteater, a pig, and even an elephant. What it really is however, is a ‘tapir’. Funny enough, its closest cousins are horses and rhinos.

Tapirs are nocturnal that’s why this guy here was clearly enjoying his rest during the day, not caring much for the people who came to see him.
