We know this little cutie and her mama are EXTRA thankful to the Denver Zoo!
Rinny, the mama tapir, had just given birth to her baby boy…but the happy moment turned desperate afterwards.
The babe was trapped in Rinny's amniotic sac, and she tried and tried to free her son to no avail.
That's when curator Rebecca McCloskey and veterinarian Gwen Jankowski literally LEAPED into the tapir area and began tearing away the sac.
The women then began life rescuing techniques, including CPR and the baby was saved!
Dumadi, the newborn, is now doing well, thanks to these quick thinking ladies!
Check out the harrowing and incredibly sweet video (above) RIGHT NOW!
