Although often mistaken for pigs, ant eaters, or aardvarks, the tapir is most closely related to the primitive horse. The tapir is the largest member of the odd toed ungulate family. It has four hooves on its front feet, and three hooves on its rear feet. It may appear sluggish, but it can crash through brush at nearly 30 miles per hour. It mates underwater and has a gestation period of over 300 days. It's habitat is rapidly diminishing and tapirs are nearing exticntion. In rare cases tapirs have been observed belching large flames nearly 14 feet to fend off predators. They sure is some crazy niggas.
Look over there, a tapir is feeding on eucalyptus.
