Okay, so I knew World Tapir Day was coming up, but this is more of a complete coincidence- I decided I needed some more stuff for the big portfolio review this past week, and I love tapirs, so... Tapirs it is. The temptation to now outline some tapir epic is tempting.

Starstruck / Starry Eyed The design of those tapirs is awesome! Nice job. They look like background animals for a Disney movie (especially one from the Disney Renaissance Era during the events of 1989-1999).

Tapirs are one of the most underrated animals, along with okapis, pangolins, secretary birds, cassowaries, and tuataras.

I wish they would appear in movies more often.

My top 3 favorite animals in the world are:

1. Wolves

2. Rhinos

3. Tapirs

Don't get me wrong, I love them all the same. :) did you know that rhinos and tapirs are related?

YES I am totally fascinated by odd-toed ungulates. :D  And that's a pretty perfect list, honestly.

Thanx. #4 is lions, and numbers 5 & 6 are whales and camels.

Tapirs I believe are my favorite non-canine animal. They are so unique and beautiful.
