New distribution records and habitat availability of the Colombian danta Tapirus terrestris colombianus) in the low lands of the northern Central Mountain Chain (Colombia). The aim of this study was to determine some aspects of the distribution and habitat availability for the subspecies Tapirus terrestris colombianus in the low lands of the northern Central Mountain Chain in Colombia, which is known as the Antioquian Northeast. The results confirm the presence of this subspecies in 20 new recording localities. The habitat availability was estimated by locating the records on images of vegetation covertures, being primary forest the predominant vegetation followed by bushland.
