In Real Life

A Malayan Tapir

Malayan tapirs are located in southeast Asia, in countries such as Thailand and Burma. They can also be found on the island of Sumatra. Malayan tapirs inhabit the forests and tropical rainforests of these countries, and often will remain near sources of water such as streams or rivers.

The diet consists of leaves, buds, growing twigs, bark and herbs. Although they are selective browsers, they feed on more than 122 species of plants and do not concentrate feeding in any particular location. Tigers and leopards are the major natural predators of Malayan tapirs. However, they are not often preyed upon.

Although generally considered solitary, nocturnal animals, Malayan tapirs are more tolerant of conspecifics and demonstrate crepuscular rather than completely nocturnal activity in undisturbed forests. They may form groups in times of food shortage. In captivity, personalities vary from solitary to social and from tame to aggressive. They are agile, can run quickly, and are capable of climbing over small vertical barriers.
