Malayan Tapir (Tapirus indicus)

Set of scaled elevation drawings of the Malayan Tapir viewed from the front and side

The Malayan Tapir (Tapirus indicus) is native to Southeast Asia. It is also called the Asian tapir or Indian tapir. It is easily identified by the light-colored patch running from its shoulders to its hindquarters. The rest of the body is covered in black hair, though the tip of the ears have white rims. The eyesight is poor but the smell and hearing is well developed. The front feet have four toes and the back feet three toes. The tail is small and stubby, while the proboscis, like on other tapirs, is long and flexible. It is mostly found in tropical terrestrial rainforests and is the least aquatic in the Tapiridae family.

Malayan Tapirs have a total body length between 72.8”-94.5” (185-240 cm), standing shoulder height of 40.2”-51.2” (102-130 cm), and body width of 19.3”-24.4” (49-62 cm). The typical weight of the Malayan Tapir is in the range of 551-882 lb (250-400 kg). Malayan Tapir have lifespans between 25-37 years.

Tapirs, or Tapiridae, have a profile of a pig, although they are a little larger than pigs. A short prehensile nose trunk is visible on their heads for cleaning themselves and grabbing branches or food. They have a short coat that can be reddish brown, gray, or black.
