"The Long-Nosed Tapir"
This old-time wood engraving was made by Thomas Bewick, an English artist and engraver who lived from 1753 to 1828. This print comes from a copyright-free Dover edition, although the original was probably printed about 1790. One reason for calling it the "long-nosed tapir" is probably because the capybara was called a "short-nosed tapir" at that time.
All tapirs are endangered species.
Saving tapirs helps save the rainforest.
