Range and behavior
Baird's tapir (Tapirus bairdii) frequents the dry forests and tropical rainforests in Central America, from southern Mexico to Colombia and Ecuador. It evolves in the plains and in the mountains up to 6,561 feet (2,000 meters) in altitude where the human impact is less. It appreciates the proximity of water points in which it likes to bathe to cool off and get rid of parasites. It is distinguished by its short trunk, but also by its particular toes, four in number on each front foot and three on each rear foot.
