We recently welcomed a baby Baird’s tapir, born to first-time mom Mia.
Learn about the hard work that goes into preparing for Zoo babies.
After keepers noticed a small crack on one of Antonio’s hooves, our animal care team jumped to action to provide preventative care in the form of custom-made “shoes”.
Over the summer, we took the exciting step of physically introducing Baird’s tapirs Mia and Antonio to one another.
Three-year-old Baird’s tapir Antonio has arrived and is almost ready to meet future mate Mia in their Rainforest Revealed home!
Mamma Mia—she’s a cutie!
