t is for thor the tapir

/ tapir time by nutandbee /

i was watching/editing a show at work yesterday about tapirs in costa rica and they are so cute! they look like a cross between an anteater and hippo and apparently different tapir species were once distributed around the world, but now only exist in a few small patches in central/south america. the show (final chance to save) followed a scientist who has been tracking a tapir family, one of which was named thor. unfortunately the website about the project seems like it might not have been updated recently.
