All the baby tapir you could ask for. [Sep. 2nd, 2013|07:43 am]
Marissa Lingen

The Minnesota Zoo has a new baby tapir, and she is so cute. I mean, sure, other people’s baby tapirs are cute, but…well, okay, she looks very much like them. But imagine how cute that is! With the watermelon mottling and the wee snout!

Oh wait! You don’t have to imagine. Because Tim has been taking pictures of her. You can see hundreds of adorable baby tapir pictures on his baby tapir photos Tumblr. If you’re one of those people saying, “Eh, what’s Tumblr for, really?”, the answer is here: baby. Tapir. Photos.

And then! You can get some of the best of them in high-quality art prints, or in sets of equality high-quality cards to send to your near and dear (or your distant and disliked–it’s not up to me where you send them). Because he’s having a Baby Tapir Blowout Sale! Now until September 12.

Tapir tapir tapir. So cute. I had been thinking of her as Hosey-nose, as an homage to the Hilary Casson books, but she needs a better name than that. The children at the zoo with Tim on Saturday thought perhaps Torpedo, and I have been going with that. Because she is a concentrated missile of mottled cuteness shooting through the water (or air).

Would I lie to you? Okay, repeatedly and for money. But would I like to you about baby tapirs?

Words fail me. I mean, seriously, they did. Fortunately nobody else was awake to hear me making ridiculous noises. I particularly like the one where she's in the same pose as her mother, and all the nuzzly ones with her mother. She looks so alert and sometimes mischievous.

That much cuteness is barely legal, I tell ya.
