A review of the reproductive biology and breeding management of tapirs.
TLDR
Data indicate that females are polyestrous, with an estrous cycle length of approximately 30 days, and Optimization of assisted reproductive technologies, including sperm cryopreservation and artificial insemination, could benefit the genetic management of tapirs.
Social and Reproductive Behavior of Captive Malayan Tapirs’ (Tapirus indicus): Interactions with Maternal Experience and Environmental Conditions
TLDR
Investigating how tapir reproduction is affected by previous breeding experience, enclosure type/size and visitor numbers, and captive environments on Malayan tapirs revealed that social and reproductive behavior of both sexes was significantly influenced by social and environmental conditions.
Ultrasonographic measurement of fetal growth parameters over three successive pregnancies in a captive Malayan tapir (Tapirus indicus).
TLDR
The serial transabdominal ultrasound, without the need for anesthesia, was an effective method to evaluate fetal growth, development and well being in a Malayan tapir.
Influence of enclosure condition and visitor numbers on behaviour of captive Malayan tapir
TLDR
It is concluded that unsuitable enclosure conditions of extreme dryness and number of visitors are prone to be potential stressors that lower the activity pattern that possibly alter the natural behaviours of Malayan tapir.

ULTRASONOGRAPHY OF THE REPRODUCTIVE ANATOMY IN THE SUMATRAN RHINOCEROS (DICERORHINUS SUMATRENSIS)
TLDR
The successful application of ultrasonography to describe the reproductive anatomy of one male and four female Sumatran rhinoceroses at the Sungai Dusun Reserve in Selangor, Malaysia is detailed.
Gross Anatomy and Ultrasonographic Images of the Reproductive System of the Sumatran Rhinoceros (Dicerorhinus sumatrensis)
TLDR
The anatomy of the reproductive system was based on two post‐mortem specimens and transrectal real‐time ultrasonography in six adult females, and genitalia of the Sumatran rhinoceros were similar to those of other species of Rhinoceroses.
Gross Anatomy of the Female Genital Organs of the Domestic Donkey (Equus asinus Linné, 1758)
TLDR
In comparison with anatomical data of horses obtained from literature the genital organs of jennies appear to be more voluminous in relation to the body mass and the position of the ovaries is slightly further cranial than in mares.
