Its a female Baird’s Tapir, born at the Palm Beach Zoo and Conservation Society. Her name is Luna, a name bestowed by school children. Mom is not as decorative as her daughter, but these Tapirs are an endangered species, so it’s nice to see this new, very cute one.
Their range in the wild is from southern Mexico down through Central America as far as Ecuador. They are mostly solitary and active at night.
