October 24, 2006—"Ailton," a South American tapir, explores the perimeter of his enclosure at the Hagenbeck Zoo in Hamburg, Germany. When the four-week-old is not checking out his new surroundings or being doted upon by his mother, Carmina, he chews happily on carrots and plays.

The leaf-eating tapir is related to the rhinoceros.
