Baby animals are almost always cute, and that theory has been proven again as the Denver Zoo has welcomed a new baby Malayan tapir, and I kind of want to squeeze it.
The baby was named Umi, which means “life” in Malayan.
Umi and her mom will stay behind the scenes until the baby tapir can swim and both are comfortable enough to venture outside.
Tapirs are most closely related to horses and rhinos, but their build is similar to pigs, but larger.
Here are some more pictures of the new addition to the zoo...
