The Brazilian Tapier, Tapirus terrestris is generally solitary, and is found near rivers in mesic, transitional, and humid forest. The daily movements of the tapirs produce well-worn paths that are used by hunters to track these animals. There are Pleistocene fossil remains of the Brazilian tapir from a number of regions in Brazil.
