When I was a kid at the height of saving the rainforest, they played us a video of a song in school called Rainforest Rap. The only line I remember from it was

This is a tapir I know of course
It looks like a pig but it's more like a horse

the chimps in 2001 try to eat tapirs then use tapir bones to kill other chimps. then he throws the tapir bone high up spinning in the air. the tapir bone is more famous than the tapir.
  6:36am Rob from Maryland:

Should I say what it sounds like the organisms are saying in this Rooster Rock song?
  6:37am Rob from Maryland:

And good morning everyone
  6:38am Rob from Maryland:

For what it's worth, tapirs and chimpanzees do not naturally co-occur.

No, do not say it, there are animals listening!
  6:41am yippie:

every time a chimp and a tapir get together they go straight to outer space

this bonobos song is wild. love it
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:03am dday:

@Lix: From the band Heart maybe?
The album's name (Bad Animals) refers to a situation the band encountered at a hotel in Charlotte, North Carolina. Ann Wilson's dog was at the hotel with her, and hotel security informed the band that a North Carolina law made it a crime to bring an animal into a hotel room. The band's tour manager solved the problem by going outside with the dog for three hours
