Tearjerker by darkdex52 Tearjerker by darkdex52
One day I was at the zoo.

I saw a tapir.

And I saw how he sat there alone, not moving at all.

I don't know, if he liked that I took a picture of him.

Poor fellow. I always loved tapirs, capybaras, etc. (thank you, Bill Peet) They should have at least given him a friend or something

ohh ... from my experiences, I came to a thought that all living creatures are the same - just souls ... the shape does not matter ..

This makes me wonder what the tapir is thinking about.
