About

Docile, nocturnal creatures, tapirs are large, hoofed mammals with elongated, flexible snouts. They bear a resemblance to aardvarks, but are most closely related to rhinos and horses. The body of the tapir is rounded and covered in short, bristly fur. They live in dense forests near rivers or lakes –taking to water when threatened.
