Tapirs are primitive animals that have remained unchanged for millions of years. Fossils of tapir ancestors have been found on every continent except Antarctica. Closest relatives of tapirs are horses and rhinos.
Its nose and upper lip are combined into a flexible snout that the animal uses to reach and pull food into its mouth. Tapirs are nocturnal animals that like to spend a lot of time in the water. They can stay under the water for several minutes. In fact, when frightened, tapirs hide in the water and breathe with their snout poked above the surface like a snorkel!

Zoo keepers at the United Kingdom’s Chester Zoo have announced the birth of a baby Brazilian Tapir. Though he’s tiny now, the calf will double his weight in his first 14-21 days!

I just don’t understand how this happened. But here’s a picture of a lemon from my backyard

every villain is lemons
And finally, dear listeners, a reminder; several concerned citizens have brought to the city’s attention an irregularity surrounding this summer’s citrus harvest. City council would like to remind all enterprising fruit pickers to exercise reasonable caution when acquiring these fruits. Grasp the fruit firmly around its circumference, pull slowly but steadily to avoid damaging the tree, and under no circumstances heed its demands of you. Do not acknowledge or obey the depraved whisperings of the demon fruit.
And now: The Weather.

Me Kissing an Annoyed Statue of Millard Fillmore
Velogiraffe and I had way too much fun tracking down (and occasionally harassing) all the presidential statues in Rapid City, South Dakota after visiting Mount Rushmore.
She can mock me all she wants for my enthusiasm over finding the Millard Fillmore statue but guys, GUYS, this is what the official description of his statue has to say about him:
"Fillmore became president upon the death of Zachary Taylor. Taylor’s policies were often in opposition to those of his vice president, so Taylor kept Vice President Fillmore so far from power that he even denied Fillmore the courtesy of political appointment in his home state of New York. History has not been kind to Fillmore. Ranked among the bottom 10 of the United States presidents, Fillmore is better known for his failures than his accomplishments in his political life. Fillmore was a sullen, introverted man and the sculptor chose to depict him with an expression of slight annoyance as visitors interrupt his reading."
I’m not sure why Lionteacher is implying I did or would mock her for this when I had shouted “TAFT” in a crowded bus just a few days previously. Let the record show that I not only took this picture, I photobombed Lincoln’s family scene with Tad, patted Pierce on the head because he was so sad, and dragged us to the other side of downtown to find Grant while yelling about how he’s gotten a raw deal from popular historical memory.
