Can't Go Wrong

Here are a variety of brazilian tapir photos. These five hundred lbs 'mountain cows' have become one of my favorite animals. How can you go wrong with three toes, a prehensile snout, and massive, toothy jaws? You can't.

Thanks for photos, Sarah.

Okay. I guess they belong on ugly overload. But I'd like to point out that tapirs as depicted herein are very cute.

Just look at that first picture; HUGE ears; adorable 'Barrooo?' expresion. I'm sure it totally meets several of the 'criteria of cute' as dictated by Cute Overload.

In the second picture... I just want to scritch it under its fuzzy wuzzy widdo chin. Dear sweet wittle tairwapir...awww...

Third picture? Okay. not so much. Disturbing, actually.

Fourth picture, we are back to cudly. Aww the widdle tapir w'its prehensel snout. Does woogam want a snackipoo? So sweet.

I totally agree! Cuteness! Though somebody should really warn the guy in the last photo he's quite likely in danger of losing that finger up the fuzzy widdo guy's snoot.

Hmm. Cute? Nose and mouth looking not unlike a penis and/or sac in first, second, and last picture, I say.

Booge: sometimes a prehensile snout is just a prehensile snout.
