Giant tapir

The giant tapir is an extinct tapir that lived in southern China and Vietnam. It appeared during the Middle Pleistocene and survived until about 4,000 years ago in China. It was larger than modern tapirs, being 2.1 meters (6.9 ft) long and 0.9 meters (3.0 ft) tall at the shoulders, and may have weighed up to 500 kilograms (1,100 lb).
