Asian African Tapir Size

The African tapir size comparison with the Malayan tapir and a human.

The African Tapir is the only African species of tapir alive today. It is slightly larger than the Malayan tapir. It can survive very well into life in cities, towns, urban, and suburbs as much as in savannahs, swamps, and rainforests. Just like North American tapirs and European tapirs, this tapir species is not endangered.
