Long snout flexes … Sharp teeth snap … Meet the tapir! Brimming with vivid photos and scientific facts, this middle-grade nonfiction book treats researchers and wild animal lovers to a comprehensive profile of these Central and South American mammals. It covers zoology topics such as anatomy, diet, habitat, and life cycle, as well as species conservation efforts and the animals' relationship with humans throughout history. Sidebars, a range map, and a glossary support the main text, while a myth about the tapir from the Bribrí people of Central America adds a cross-curricular cultural layer to the title.
