This is a mother Tapir and her offspring, as photographed in the
Hagenbeck Zoo, in Hamburg, Germany. Ailton was four weeks old
at the time. The photo is from National
Ailton was named after a brasilian soccer player who was playing for the Hamburg soccer team HSV because at birth he was as small and round as Ailton. Ailton had his best times before though when he played for Bremen. He often was nearly invisible during the game. But if a long pass was played he somehow exploded. Iguess on the first 10 to 20 m he was one of the fastest forwards ever playing in the German league.
…are we SURE this is the mother? I’m certainly no expert on tapir hind quarters but it sure looks like this one has a generous pair of testicles.
…I’m not an expert either, but I suppose the area could be enlarged if she is still nursing.
