They look like an animal put together with spare parts, but it doesn't stop them from being cute and adorable. Related to the rhinoceroses AND the horse, they have a short, movable trunk, four front toes, no horns, and form one of the oldest mammalian types. Tapirs frequent forests and are nocturnal in habit, living chiefly on vegetable matter. Tapirs are strong but shy and inoffensive and are easily tamed. And don't forget to celebrate World Tapir Day on 27th April!
