Amazons have hippos carrying wares! face-smile.png Yes, that's what the tapirs look like to me. I've watched a lot of nature documentaries and IIRC tapirs are brown.

There are multiple species with different colouring. I used to think of tapirs as half-white-half-black but learned after Thorough And Extensive Research (wikipedia face-wink.png ) that this is only one species which doesn't even live in the amazon rainforest. So I simply searched for Tapir and used the first ± orthographic result, which is a grey tapir:

Hippos' heads look completely different. And hippos are really brown.
