The Brazilian tapir (Tapirus terrestris), is one of five species in the tapir family, along with the Mountain tapir, the Malayan tapir, the Baird's tapir, and the kabomani tapir. It is the second-largest land mammal in South America, after the Baird's tapir.

A prominent, erect mane sits on top of the crest and extends from the forehead to the shoulders. The crest running from the top of the head down the back of the neck is much more pronounced than in other tapir species.

Broadly distributed across most of mainland South America east of the Andes, from northern Colombia extending to southern Brazil, northern Argentina and Paraguay, including throughout Venezuela and the Guyanas, eastern Peru, and northern and eastern Bolivia.

It is classified as Vulnerable (VU) on the IUCN Red List 2007.

In the toys world, Brazilian tapirs are really rare animals. Only Play Visions made officially one in the past. The VEB Plaho is often considered as a Brazilian tapir because of the coat and The Starlux tapir is a Brazilian tapir painted as a Malayan tapir.  Wink

Beautifully sculpted by our member Ana (Anna Dobrowolska-Oczko), the Mojo Brazilian tapir is so the second official Brazilian tapir figure and it is a hit.  Applause

And I still don’t understand why we forgot to make a walkaround.  scratch

Fantastic that you noticed it was missing a walk around of that outstanding figure sculpted by Anna! cheers I have it and recomend to everyone, you point correctly that it is the 2nd official Brazilian tapir and it is the first in this size range.
I used the chance to watch the Starlux tapir on TAI and you're right, its crest makes it look like a Brazilian tapir and not a Malayan tapir. Thanks for these great pictures! cheers
