Although tapirs are often mistaken for pigs and anteaters, they're in the odd-toed hooved animal family as are the horse and rinocerous. All four species of tapir are endangered. The Malay tapir is native to Asia, where its natural enemies are the tiger and man. The largest tapir, the Malay tapir weighs up to 800 pounds. It also has the most dramatic coloration, with black shoulders, head, and legs and a white band around the body.
