From the 2017 eclipse: "A female Malayan tapir awoke from sleep as the eclipse began and started foraging. As totality commenced, the tapir repeatedly entered and exited her pool until the eclipse ended, a behavior previously never seen by her keeper."

In Hartstone-Rose et al., 2020. The tapir was living at the Riverbanks Zoo, Columbia SC.

I haven't seen any reports yet on tapir reactions to this week's eclipse -- maybe there will be papers coming out in the next couple of years.

The snoring tapir -- next nominee, one of these Malayan tapirs at the Tama Zoological Park in Japan. (Not sure if they actually are sleeping ... the clucking noise heard at intervals is one they seem to make when they're flirting with each other?)

If there are any tapirs living along the path of the North American eclipse next month (Apr 8), they might want to get their viewing goggles ready! (Pic from Europe, 1999)

New baby Malayan tapir (male) born, Feb 12th. I hope he has a long and healthy life -- and that his mom has many more calves.

I made a tapir coloring book... and it can arrive in time for Valentine's day!

What has:
- 104 pages
- Endless dad jokes
- is fun for ages 5-105
- a prehensile snout

AND will arrive in time for Valentine's?

Why, it's a Tapestry of Tapirs!

Links in the comments. Plus, 100% of proceeds go toward charitable contributions and donations.

Hi, my name is Jonathan, and I'm an educator and doc in California. I made educational coloring books about under-appreciated animals, and we use the proceeds from sales to fund donations, community education, and donations.

I'd love for your consideration as we help to educate about these awesome and endangered animals and draw attention to why we all love them so much.
