Here in Venezuela we call them "Onzas" they are kinda a big deal cause the goddes "Marialionza" rides them like a horse je, Marialionza is very important for many ethnic groups. :) aaaand ur art is awesome

No one ever seems to draw Tapirs, and I always did love their enigmatically happy little faces. Lovely work!
