Baby Tapirs Are The Cutest Odd Little Creatures

It's World Tapir day today and you are probably wondering what is this odd little creature that looks a bit like a pig, with its general build and toes with hooves, but also a bit like a baby elephant with its long snout. 

Well, this wonderful animal is currently on the watch-list as it has been over-hunted for its meat and hides. 

World Tapir Day raises awareness about these endangered animals and helps to protect them for future generations.

Especially for this day, we have compiled an adorable list of baby tapirs that are just too cute to handle. 

 After a 13-month gestation period, a single tapir baby called a calf, is born while the mother stands. The calf is born with his eyes open, and it can stand one or two hours after birth. All tapir calves look like brown- and beige-striped watermelons on legs. This color pattern is great camouflage for the youngsters in the dappled sunlight of the forest, especially when the calf lies down on the ground while Mom forages. The calf begins to lose these markings after a few months, and when the youngster is about six months old, it looks like a miniature adult.
