Looks like a pig. Looks like an anteater. Looks like an elephant. It’s a tapir! Believe it or not, this curious-looking mammal is actually a relative of horses. Don't let the tapir figurine from Schleich Wild Life fool you, though…he's actually most at home in play rooms, toy chests, and on wild adventures.
- Additional Information
- Detailed & Authentic. Just like a tapir in the wild, our tapir figurine has four toes on the front feet and three toes on the back feet…which makes shoe shopping a nightmare!
- Encourages Storytelling. Who says a toy needs moving parts to be fun? Our tapir invites you to a world where four-legged friends can fly, rhyme, color, build pillow forts, battle pirates, and have tea parties.
- Quality You Can Feel. It's a jungle out there, so we built our tapir toy to withstand Mother Nature and Father Time.
- Perfect for Grassland Dioramas. Need South American animal figures for your school project? Our tapir is a must-have character in any South American grassland scene!
- Great Gift for Animal Lovers. Your little zookeepers and future veterinarians will fall in love with our miniature toy tapir – perfect for gift bags, stockings, or as a tapir cake topper.

Tapirs can walk underwater on the bottom of a lake or river, much like a hippo. Is that why they’re so good at playing “Marco Polo?”
