The kabomani tapir, also known as the little black tapir, is the smallest tapir species. It is found in the Amazon rainforest, overlapping with a small part of the South American tapir’s range.
It was discovered very recently in 2013, making it the first odd-toed ungulate discovered in over 100 years. Its status as a distinct species is disputed, and genetic evidence indicates that the kabomani tapir might be a subspecies of the South American tapir.
