Get ready for some cuteness overload! Check out our new video starring baby Antonio! This little Baird's tapir was born Saturday, Feb. 4. He'll have his colorful pattern of stripes and spots for a while until they slowly disappear as he grows older.

The Baird’s tapirs at the Houston Zoo are ambassadors for their wild counterparts in South America. The Houston Zoo supports the protection of this endangered species in Central America as well as the Lowland tapir in Brazil through a partnership with the IUCN/SSC Tapir Specialist Group to support field research in Brazil’s Pantanal region.
