The mountain tapir (Tapirus pinchaque) is a 'living fossil'; the smallest of four surviving species of tapir that represent the remnants of a lineage that evolved around 55 million years ago, after the demise of the dinosaurs. The mountain tapir is also known as the 'woolly tapir' due to its thick, woolly reddish-brown to black fur. The tips of the ears are white and some tapirs have a whitish band between the feet and hooves. The lips and nose are drawn into a prehensile proboscis, a feature shared by all living tapirs Infants under one year of age are reddish-brown in colour with a series of white stripes and spots. Females tend to be slightly larger than males, but are otherwise very similar in appearance.
