Tapirs are large, pudgy, pig-like animals that like to live in wet areas in South America. South American tapirs in particular are dark brown or gray in color and have a thick layer of skin. Unfortunately, tapirs are almost endangered with between 3,000 and 4,500 species left due to poaching and habitat loss. Therefore, I think in the future, tapir will have a different body and live in a dangerous location. Due to habitat loss, tapirs might move from the Amazon to the Pantanal, a swamp that neighbors the rainforest. Tapirs might also grow green, tiger-like stripes to camouflage with their environment. To run from poachers, they can also adapt their bodies to have a flexible spine, long legs, and less fat.
