The tapir is a survivalist
The jungle inhabitant is much more than just pretty. The tapir is beautiful and above all a brave survivalist. For more than 14 million years, the quick-reacting vegan has roamed tropical rainforests worldwide; equipped with everything it needs to survive it continues to exist in the wilderness. The tapir is indeed a real survivor on this wonderful world.
