The tapir looks like a creation of Dr. Moreau. This sleepy specimen looks like some cross between an elephant, an anteater, a mountain lion (look at that tawny coat), a pig, and might even have some koala in it. I can't quite peg the ears. This creature's ugliness doesn't have a cringe factor; it just gives you that double-take, 'I don't know what to make of it' feeling.
Their alien looks makes me wonder why this animal hasn't been made the lead character on a Saturday morning cartoon.
Thanks for the great photography, Zombie Squirrel. Check out his other work here.
