"Snorgle" is my middle name

This, People, is a tapir, a sweet lil' pig-like guy that's born with stripes and a nose meant for snorgling. He's ready to go!

Ladies and gentlemen, start your snorgles.

Thank you, Anthony, L.

WHOA! - I'm still trying to get over the shock of this picture. It's an ant-eater? It's a zebra? It's got mouse-ears! But gaawsh he's cute! I am compelled to snorgle. *ouch* as I hit the screen ;)

Ok, so new rule? If your nose is bigger than the rest of your head, it's cute!

The look in his eye in that first pic! OMG So intelligent! So cute! Snorgleheaven, for sure!

Oh, the shapes, the *shapes*!!! Maybe he's snorgling back at us...

Aubrey, do you post on dailykitten.com? There's an Aubrey I saw on there.

So trendeh, with its color-coordinated mix of spots and stripes!

This poor creature is born to snorgle.

NTMTOM, great minds think alike... "Haaa chachaaaaaa"

jaypo
 |  May 19, 2006 at 01:44 PM

btw, are the first tapir and the second tapir the same tapir? Let us discuss.

 |  May 19, 2006 at 01:48 PM

Thinker, I think not.

#1 bebe's face: no spots.
#2 babe's face: spots.

I always thought it was cute how baby tapirs had such funky coloration, while the adults were more or less solid.

They always reminded me of watermelons...if watermelons weren't green...and were fuzzy...and had a schnorgly nose...and had 4 feet...

I love me my kittens, and yes I visit http://www.dailykitten.com ...er...daily (at least!)

Aubrey-
Trumpy!
You can do stupid things!
Kid would have been better off with a tapir.

lauowolf
 |  May 19, 2006 at 01:53 PM

EEEEEEEE!!!! Check out that nose. Love the snorgles!

chackler
 |  May 19, 2006 at 01:59 PM

Look at his little eye. And those ears!
Sooo cute!

EMH
 |  May 19, 2006 at 02:03 PM

I'll bet these little fellas could hold their own in a snorgling contest.

Not only to they look snorgle-able, they also look like they can do a little snorgling of their own.

And the cute, cartoon eyes on the first dude are just too sweet!

It's kind of like the Mr. Potato Head of animals.

Let's see here....mouse ears...check...aardvark nose........check.....tigerzebraish fur......check....piglet body....check. Owkay. Get him some groucho marx glasses and he's good to go.

Apologies for the double post. I just got SO EXCITED about MST3K. (Or I stupidly reloaded the page at the wrong time.)

I've loved tapirs for years, so this makes me happy that they've found a place on CO.

*squee*

Now we need to work on getting an okapi on here next.

In case anyone doesn't know what an okapi is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Okapi

 |  May 19, 2006 at 03:31 PM

I clicked on the wikipedia link and then it wouldn't let me click back to CO.

I *hate* websites that do that!!!

A few cute okapis here wouldn't hurt, tho...

Proof that I watch Animal Planet waaaaaaay too much is when I can go "Oooh! Tapir!" before reading anything.

Edward
 |  May 19, 2006 at 03:57 PM

Mommy looks at that and goes all, "Ooohhh, I'm melting!"
I don't get it.

Attention, everyone!

Please be advised that although the baby tapir pictured here is quite cute, a Google Image search for further cuteness may result in finding the following SCARY AS A BERRY MAMA TAPIR:

Tread carefully, my friends.

ka9q'swife,

I was going to comment on the eyes but you beat me to it.
They almost have warmth about them.
What a lovely creature. *smiles*

Diane-
Mama tapir does have a certain sultry charm.
Not cute, though.
But maybe with her teeth cleaned...

lauowolf
 |  May 19, 2006 at 06:17 PM

And what is scriptoroverload and how did I end up there???
(sort of like an alien abduction, only without the weird surgeries)

lauowolf

My reaction: Awwwww.

They're lovely!
