Tapirs are large ungulate mammals, so their activities are confined to the forest floor.

Malayan Tapirs live in the areas of Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, and Sumatra. They usually stay near streams and swamps of the rainforest. This species of tapirs has a black and white body. They are the closest relatives of the horses, and rhinoceroses. Malayan Tapirs have a snout that looks like a short elephant trunk. The trunk is used to smell and push food into the mouth. They are really shy. When they sense danger, the tapir quickly run away to find safety. The tapirs usually live alone or in pair. Measuring from ground up to shoulder, the tapirs are about 34 - 42 inches (86.4 - 108.7cm) tall. They weigh between 550 - 660 pounds (249.5 - 299.4kg). The average life span is 30 years. Females can produce every 18 months an infant. The average gestation period is between 390 - 395 days. Since they live in the forest and around streams, the Malayan Tapirs eat grass, aquatic vegetation, leaves, buds, and twigs. They also like fruits of low standing shrubs. Now the Malayan Tapirs are endangered because of the loss of habitat. People cut down forests for timber and agricultural use. Thus the tapirs have no place to hide when poachers pursuit them. The local people also hunt them down for leather and meat. Fortunately, government of Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia passed laws to ban people from hurting these creatures. The only thing now is to enforce these laws.yes

Because of their size, tapirs have few natural predators, and even reports of killings by tigers are scarce. The main threat to the Malayan tapirs is human activity, including deforestation for agricultural purposes, flooding caused by the damming of rivers for hydroelectric projects, and illegal trade. In Thailand, for instance, capture and sale of a young tapir may be worth US$5500.00. what? go on nick.com :)

Reticulated pythons and saltwater crocodiles occasionally prey on sun bears.

There are pandas, black leopards, muntjacs, flying foxes, Malayan tapirs, fishing cats, Indian one-horned rhinoceri, sarus cranes, Asian elephants, white-cheeked gibbons, and binturongs.

The two Tapir species, (Malayan and Brazilian) are listed as vulnerable on the IUCN's (International Union for Conservation of Nature) redlist. This is because of lost or fragmented habitat, they are hunted for their meat, and they have to compete with livestock for food.
