Additional Information
A lot of animals like water. But hardly any like it as much as the Tapir from Schleich® WILD LIFE. At home in the tropical rainforests of Asia, the exotic trunked animal loves being in the water. But not because it likes washing itself. Instead, it enjoys cooling down or exploring. The small trunk can even be used as a snorkel. Perfect for looking for lost pirate treasure at the bottom of the river. Do you know what else the trunk can do? Whistle. Our Tapir is also happy to perform on the big stage in front of an audience. Are you coming?
