Baird's Tapir;Oaxaca;distribution;habitat;records
In February 2007, in the municipality of Santo Domingo Ingenio, Juchian District, Oaxaca state, we obtained the record of an individual of Baird's Tapir (Tapirus bairdii) from a photograph provided by the inhabitants of the site. The photograph was taken in 2005 during the rainy season, showing a dead adult tapir which was hunted at only 1.5 kin north from Santo Domingo town. This is the most recent record of Baird-Tapir in the state of Oaxaca and suggests that this individual probably moved from the mountainous zone of Los Chimalapas towards the Itsmus of Tehuantepec.
