Photo Friday: From My Window

Day 213 – February 20, 2012

This week, the theme from the folks over at Photo Friday was “From My Window“.

While enjoying an exciting jungle adventure in the Peruvian Amazon, we saw this sight outside of our cabin.

We nicknamed him Senor Toby.

He’s a tapir. Definitely not something you see every day.
