It's funny, I've never thought about bull terriers looking like tapirs, but now that you mention it, I can totally see it! :lol: Thanks for the comment--glad you like the drawing. They're really neat animals, and it was really fun to draw this one.

How about "Bender?"
I can't help but to think of "Bender is a lone wolf, a solitary eagle! A cuddly baby tapir, and that's why I love him!" whenever I see a tapir.

How about Lord Higglebottom?
He looks like he could easily be an English lord. I imagine him with a bowler and a cane, drinking tea and saying "pip pip!"
He definitely looks like a tapir. I love his sloping back and big round body.

Shivs gunna love this one!! These be her fav animal :w00t:

Youve captured a very thoughtful yet comforted expression on his chubby chops. Great fluid pencil strokes in this piece, really creates the illusion of the skin of the Tapir. Ya know, all velvety :D

I dub thee Clyde little Tapir!

Hehe, glad you like.

Tulip's a great name! I should have a whole group of tapir characters so I can name them all of the great names everyone has suggested.
