Tapir_worldShine up your schnozzle, 'cause it's World Tapir Day.

According to Sender-Innner Anthony L., the aim of the day is to raise awareness of tapir conservation. And to show off their prosh little logo!

Find out more on tapirs and the conservation efforts to save them. All store profits go to tapir conservation projects. The Tapir Gallery has a lot of schnozzles in it, just like this guy. ;)

I'll admit that I've not been very kind to the tapir in the past. I was once assigned a report on the tapir in the 7th grade and I was very vocal about my displeasure.

But it's nice to see that there are people out there promoting their cause.

Somewhere Jimmy Durante is playing da ukelele and saying "ha-cha-cha!"

Goodnight Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are!

HAPPY WORLD TAPIR DAY right back atcha!!!!!

 |  Apr 27, 2008 at 01:23 PM

Eeeee!! That is absolutely prosh, the definition of prosh logo-itude.

 |  Apr 27, 2008 at 01:28 PM

Yeah, Tapirs rule!

Holy Cuteness

The schnozzle isn't the part of the anatomy the tapir is famous for...

So, I went to Belize several years ago, and visited the Belize Zoo. The Baird's tapir is the national animal, so obviously we saw some there.

Let me just say that all men should be *very* jealous of tapirs...

 |  Apr 27, 2008 at 01:50 PM

Heh, they're kind of cute in a weird sort of way.

 |  Apr 27, 2008 at 01:52 PM

I wish I could be with all my friends during this sacred holiday, gathered around the watering hole, licking the salt licks together, singing all the traditional tapir carols, rolling in the mud....... sigh****.

Tapirs look like a cross between a pig and an aardvark to me. So darn ridiculous it's cute. And the BABY ones have spots/stripes like a fawn:

 |  Apr 27, 2008 at 02:45 PM

Tapir Day! Finally! I love these guys! :)
I just bought a shirt and a mug from the store.
Happy Tapir Day everybody!

 |  Apr 27, 2008 at 02:50 PM

True fact: Tapirs only poop in water.

 |  Apr 27, 2008 at 03:33 PM

I'm relatively new to the site, have an exam in about ten hours and no idea how to go about letting you all know about a bit of news, but our favourite polar Flocke's been featured in a Time photo essay as "Germany's latest polar bear celebrity". They don't have as cute pictures as Cute Overload, though :) And oh yes, Happy Tapir Day everyone!

Tapirs are cool, tapirs are great,
Tapirs are odd-toed ungulates.

Seriously though, it's great that their conservation is featured here - thanks Meg :)

 |  Apr 27, 2008 at 05:23 PM

That logo should win some kind of an award. How adorable!!

They're ungulates, really? I did not know that. Learn something new everyday!

 |  Apr 27, 2008 at 05:28 PM

aw that cartoon is sweet.

 |  Apr 27, 2008 at 07:12 PM

Ooh, Tapirs! They were my faves when I went to the zoo as a tiny one.

Thanks for the important info. It has inspired a post on MY blog, too!

Tapirs are great, fore and aft!
When he wiggles his nose, you'll feel a draft!

That was then and this is now. I'm sure that if any feelings were hurt by your 7th grade report it is all water under the bridge now.

Besides, tapirs are not known for holding grudges. When was the last time you heard of a revenge killing committed by a tapir?

 |  Apr 27, 2008 at 08:46 PM

Happy Tapir Day everyone! I'm glad everyone likes the logo! My boyfriend Chris made it. All the profits of the merchandise are going to tapir conservation. If you like Chris' artwork, check out his cute blog!!


 |  Apr 27, 2008 at 08:55 PM

Emily, Chris' work is wonderful. I love his birds and the boy with the beautiful sad sparkly eyes. I was wondering who mad the logo and wanted to see more of their work and was so glad to see your post! Thank you. He is very talented and he has such a creative eye. I love it. Just my style!

Does he sell any of his work? (like the ones he has on his blog I mean...)

 |  Apr 27, 2008 at 09:12 PM

So cute!

Senor Tapirpannnts in the logo looks like he's wearing a diaper!

 |  Apr 27, 2008 at 11:05 PM

Are you folks saying Tapirs have huge schlongs.

Hon Glad
 |  Apr 27, 2008 at 11:18 PM

The tapir has one of the biggest genitalia to body size ratio in all the world. you have one of the smallest. the tapir is better than you.

Chris also has a really cool party tapir in his blog - it's the whole reason why he was asked to be involved with World Tapir Day :) Please check his blog out - he's really talented.

Darrylsmama, if what you say about tapirs' pooping habits is true, then we best leave tapirs off the guest list of the next pool party.

 |  Apr 28, 2008 at 07:28 AM

And if what some of the rest of you say is true, then we had better hope that, if the tapir decides to crash the pool party, he wears a bathing suit. And not a speedo.

 |  Apr 28, 2008 at 10:14 AM

I love tapirs! I sent in a picture of me feeding a tapir for the Cute, I hope she gets her place in here!

 |  Apr 28, 2008 at 10:44 AM

Oh, and speaking of huge tapir schlongs, I can definitely account for that! I witnessed it first hand, and it was gi-normous! It hung to the ground, and then some. It started curling around like a fire hose! I was both fascinated and repulsed!

 |  Apr 28, 2008 at 10:46 AM

OK- as long as we don't get them confused with the guys who hang your sheetrock. I believe their genitalia situation is better left private.

Take a tapir to lunch! Just no swim-up bars!

 |  Apr 28, 2008 at 11:55 AM

Melinda -- was it of uniform girth, or did it... y'know... taper?

 |  Apr 28, 2008 at 12:24 PM

Theo, you're the man.

 |  Apr 28, 2008 at 03:18 PM

I've never had the chance to meet a tapir..my life clearly needs enrichment...
and I don't know what an
ungulate is...But CHRIS'S
great-looking logo and KATRINA'S idea to take a tapir to lunch...I'M GETTING CAUGHT-UP IN THE
EXCREMENT...Sorry, that's
supposed to read EXCITEMENT...maybe we need fewer ignorant puppies like me and LOTS MORE TAPIRS!!

Clearly the cutest logo I have EVER seen!!

 |  Apr 29, 2008 at 03:33 AM

Oh sure, I try to be good and stay away for 3 days, and I miss National Tapir Day! I do a MEAN tapir impression, and now I have to wait another 362 days to use it! Life is so, like, not fair.
