Hello friends!

I'm very happy to start topic about tapirs! We want to see here all tapirs from your collections Very Happy

A few words about these cute animals with help of wikipedia:
A tapir is a large browsing mammal similar in shape to a pig, with a short, prehensile snout. Tapirs inhabit jungle and forest regions of South America, Central America, and Southeast Asia. The four species of tapirs are the Brazilian tapir, the Malayan tapir, Baird's tapir and the mountain tapir. All four are classified as endangered or vulnerable. Their closest relatives are the other odd-toed ungulates, including horses and rhinoceroses.

Here are tapirs from my collection. First Malayan species, this one is most often represented among modern brands.
From left to right you can see my handmade tapir female (I think from 2008) then oldest of them all Tipple Topple then Schleich (2009) then also old Lineol which I don't know production year and  tapir calf is also handmade by me at the similar time as adult.

And here are South American tapir species of my collection: CollectA Baird tapir (2013) Brazilian tapir for Mojo-resin copy painted by me, Mojo Brazilian tapir (2013) and limited edition resin Mountain tapir (limited edition 2013)

Wow, wonderful Tapirs Anna! My very best Tapir is the recent Mojo, by you! (I also like the CollectA a lot, especially with its little young'un.) The only Tapirs I have that you haven't displayed are the Safari and Papo Malayan. But if I get a chance to post pictures, I will. In the meantime, here are my two recent favorites.

Oh! and I almost forgot. I do quite like this Starlux Malayan Tapir. So I guess I have something novel to offer.

Thank you for good words about my tapir collection friends!
Yes Kiki, we know each other few years indeed! cheers
For me Lineol Malayan tapir is especially inspiring figure Very Happy
Scott, your collection is lovely and Starlux one has amazing design, one of the craziest perhaps? Very Happy cheers
Oh and laughing tapir, this is just what I would love to see as a figure too! Very Happy
Can't wait for more tapirs browsing and sniffing around this SUY bounce

Thanks Anna! I love the Kaiyodo tapir's blue eyes. Interesting enough they decided on blue instead of the usual black.
