Largest of today’s living tapir species, and the only one that is native to the Old World, the Malayan tapir Tapirus indicus is further distinguished by its striking ‘saddle’ of white, encompassing much of its torso and haunches.

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 10th, 2013

“The Congo River Basin is one of the most curious and dark regions of the modern world. While modern man often holds fast to the rather contentious view that we know all the flora and fauna this world has provided, there are strange legends that emanate from this region which may beg to differ…”

One of New Zealand’s most iconic species of bird was the huia, famed for the male and female possessing beaks of dramatically different shapes.
