Up-close and Personal Tapir Videos from the Field!
Sy Montgomery and Nic Bishop’s newest book, The Tapir Scientist, takes place in Brazil and follows Sy and Nic as they join scientist Pati Medici as they look for tapirs (who are quite adorable mammals who sort of resemble pigs). We are thrilled to share a Youtube playlist featuring nearly two dozen videos of their expedition, including interviews with the team, scenes of a tapir capture, and behind the scenes shots of a photographer at work. Check out these amazing videos such as this one, showing a tapir being tranquilized so that an examination can be performed.
