Tapirs eat moss and only moss. Every minute the tapir looks for and eats moss; One animal can eat up to 500 pounds of moss in one day. Sometimes tapirs eat up all the moss on Earth, and millions of them starve to death while moss is growing anew. But as soon as he grows, the tapirs immediately eat it.
Tapir lives in dark, scary forests and warm, sunny meadows in much of Australia, and sporadically throughout the rest of the world, and an isolated population thrives in Chicago, Cape Town, Istanbul and Hamburg, and the largest population is outside Queensland in England. A small kind of tapirs lived once in abundance in India and the Middle East, but it died out. There was once a rather ugly kind of tapir in the Netherlands, but he also died out (as did the extinct tapir, which was previously found in Tasmania).
