There are four types of tapir; this linocut is of a Malayan tapir, but this one is a baby. Tapirs always look very dapper, if improbable, in their black and white coat. The adults with their white saddles look like an aardvark crossed with an elephant, wearing a tuxedo (as can be seen in my 'Malayan Tapir' linocut). The babies have a delightful pattern of what spots and stripes, and like most baby mammals, come complete with big round eyes, and disproportionately big feet.

The Malayan Tapir (Tapirus indicus), also called the Asian Tapir, is the largest of the four species of tapir and the only one native to Asia. The Malayan Tapir was once found throughout the tropical lowland rainforests of Southeast Asia, including Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, and Vietnam. Sadly, like other tapirs, it is now endangered due to deforestation. These were always one of my favorite animals to visit at the zoo and hope that they not only survive, but flourish in the future.

This lino block print is one of an edition of 12 printed on Japanese kozo, or mulberry paper 21 cm by 23.5 cm (8.3 inches by 9.25 inches).

A linocut of an adult Malayan tapir is available here:
