The Tapir

The TV show South park aired an episode called “When an elephant makes love to a pig” relatively early during the cartoons lifespan.  If this were to happen or we cross bred the two animals an animal looking similar to the tapir could come to mind!  It’s one of the most bizarre mammals on the planet in terms of look as it can also sport a selection of different coats ranging from plan, black and white to even sporting cheetah style patterns.
Location: South America
Diet: Hebivore
Lifespan:  up to 30 years in the wild.
Interesting fact: Despite their body looking quite densely built they are excellent swimmers and can even dive to feed on aquatic plants.

As for a video to share, we have  found this awesome (and quite cheesy) video titled “What in the wirld is a Tapir?” Check it out for more info on the tapir!
