- Call of a Baird's Tapir - also Malayan Tapir *Endangered Species* Neither a pig or an anteater, tapirs are more closely related to rhinos and horses. In fact, they are primitive mammals and have lived for millions of years virtually unchanged. Fossil evidence indicates tapirs even roamed Southern California about 10000 years ago and may confirm the theory of an ancient supercontinent. These two species of tapirs were filmed at the San Diego Zoo.

The best way we found to attend Xcaret is to take a taxi and be there right when the park opens, its an all day affair. All inclusive tickets give you a choice of lunch and include some drinks at the resort. For a family vacation the Occidental Resort next to Xcaret might be a good option. Although we haven't stayed at this resort we have heard good reviews. Music: 'Lost Souls' by Ensam /tracks_detail.php?tid=65360

- Malayan Tapir The Malayan Tapir (Tapirus indicus), also called the Asian Tapir, is the largest of the four species of tapir and the only one native to Asia. The scientific name refers to the East Indies, the species' natural habitat. In the Malay language, the tapir is commonly referred to as "cipan" or "tenuk." General appearance and characteristics The animal is easily identified by its markings, most notably the light-colored saddle which extends from its shoulders to its rump. The rest of its hair is black, except for the tips of its ears which, as with other tapirs, are rimmed with white. This pattern is for camouflage: the disrupted coloration makes it more difficult to recognize it as a tapir, and other animals may mistake it for a large rock rather than a form of prey when it is lying down to sleep. SkeletonMalayan Tapirs grow to between 6 and 8 feet (1.8 to 2.4 m) in length, stand 3 to 3.5 feet (90 to 107 cm) tall, and typically weigh between 550 and 700 pounds (250 to 320 kg), although they can weigh up to 1100 pounds (500 kg). The females are usually larger than the males. Like the other types of tapir, they have small stubby tails and long, flexible proboscises. They have four toes on each front foot and three toes on each back foot. The Malayan Tapir has rather poor eyesight but excellent hearing and sense of smell.  Skeletal System The tapir has bone structure similar to all other mammals, they have the essentials of the mammalian skeleton; a skull, a ...
