Tapir at San Diego Zoo.

World Tapir Day is coming up soon, on the 27th of April. Did you know there was a day devoted to these bizarre looking creatures?

I have a friend who has a World Tapir Day t-shirt, so that was how I heard of it.
Back in the 'fiftied my sister used to work for a shipping company and was always bringing home travel brochures. My favourites were from South Africa. I was the only child in my Grade 4 class who knew what a tapir was or what a Hutu tribeswoman looked like. Great class cred for me.
Regarding days for everything, I've just had a newspaper calendar laminated for my preschool grandaughter which has May 1 as Mother Goose Day and Save the Rhino Day. Whatever happened to Labour Day? This calendar should give her some Playgroup cred. Never too young!
No. I have heard of this animal. But did not know there was a day dedicated to it
No, I have never heard of this creature, nor have I seen it before.
Odd to have a "world" day for an animal that is unusual?
by Finy
They have them for just about everything these days, don't they? It's a day for raising awareness/money to help conserve them.
What an incredibly strange looking animal. Have never heard of it.

Wow! I have never ever seen that animal in my life.
Where have I been, under a rock?*!#?!#*
Nope..1st time I'm reading of this. I hope it's a day when this animal (no doubt noble like the others) is praised and people vow to treat it better and protect it with each passing day.. or is the poor animal endangered further on this day?
I have heard of this animal, of course from Discovery/Nat Geo Wild & Animal Planet, another animal that I wanted to see was the Capybara. I was really happy to see one of each, though in captivity, at the Melbourne zoo. This has only perked up my ever-growing interest in observing animals/birds in their original habitat..
However strange the Tapir appears, I think its an excellent combination of a pygmy elephant (shorter snout) and a hog. Just amazing animal world!
Why don't Calendar makers' do one with all the 'days' that are called, then we'd all know, providing one had the calendar!

We do have 'strange' looking creatures on earth, but that does NOT mean one can denigrate them!
Human beings would look strange to lots of animals!
A Tapir is just another one of God's creatures, after all!
I wasn't denigrating them. I think they're cute. Bizarre, but cute.
