The coat pattern of our Tapir Baby from Schleich® WILD LIFE looks a little like a watermelon! Do you see it? But the cute hoofed animal doesn't just look like a watermelon; it also loves to eat them. Preferably a lot of them. As an adult, its weight means that it can lean against trees and easily knock them over to get to the fruit at the top. Yum!

Additional Information
What fruit do you think of when you see our Tapir Baby from Schleich® WILD LIFE? That’s right! Its stripes and spots look a little like a watermelon. The fun pattern fades as it grows up. As it grows, the little greedy guts puts on a lot of weight. As an adult, your little trunked friend weighs almost as much as a horse. Wow. That’s heavy. But it can also be very useful. It can simply lean against trees to knock them over. Then the Tapir calf can get to the most delicious fruits at the very top. A truly impressive animal! Until then, however, it prefers leaning on your schoolbag. Not to knock it over, but simply because it’s cozy.
