It's World Tapir Day! This tapir is celebrating with a nice, long bath. You deserve it, tapir! It's hard work, lookin' like a pig, but being more closely related to a horse.

  1. And possibly the only mammal so well endowed that it has been known to step on and trip over its own equipment when aroused. Ouch!!!

  2. Everyone has to stream 2001: A Space Odyssey off of Netflix in celebration of their best movie role ever.

  3. This tapir would *like* to celebrate with a nice long bath, except it can’t get any damned privacy. Do you mind?

  4. It’s not having a bath. The only reason it’s going towards the water is that it’s confused by the light and the people and having its teeth clipped.

  5. And possibly the only mammal so well endowed that it has been known to step on and trip over its own equipment when aroused. Ouch!!!

    Speak for yourself.

  6. Everything I know about Tapirs I learned from that Tintin album where they’re in the jungle and one of them knocks Captain Haddock over. Rock on, Tapirs!
