All Todays description on tapirs
Fossils of these large extinct animals were found in most of the world except Australia and Antarctica. They were most likely quadrupedal and could have been a fast moving to escape from predators. Their teeth suggested that they were grazing animals that fed on mostly grass and other flowering plants. They were once thought to be unintelligent, but new studies shows that they were probably about as smart as a modern day parrot, possibly able to speak some words in some sort of languages. They probably built nests and either laid eggs like a bird or give birth to live young, no one knows for sure yet. They were probably cold-blooded and lived for 150 years. They probably lived in large herds up to about 13 in a single group.
Introduction to real life North America
Since real life humans had introduced all todays tapirs to real life North America, these tapirs now coexist alongside real tapir species, including South American tapirs, Baird's tapir, mountain tapirs, kabomani tapirs, Malayan tapirs, North American tapirs, and among others. They are peaceful and gentle animals, but unlike their ancestors, however, they are no longer timid as they adapted into human settlements and learned to tolerate human activities and among others, so they now flourish alongside real tapir species and are now very tame towards any sapient species.
