    Having this framed as a story of animals offering advice to tapirs so they won’t go extinct is subtly genius.

    The tapir literally has a fifth leg...damn

    I dunno. Mrs. Tapir seemed pretty happy with the way she is. Sounds to me like she was fine with not trying to please anybody. After all, sometimes it's the flashy animals that go extinct first.
