Tapirs are new Neutral mobs that spawn in Jungles.
They have 3 different skins & sizes based on different IRL species.
• The Large, black and white Malayan.
• The South American. Medium-sized and dark brown with a small mane.
• And the rare Kabomani, which is small and black.
Tapirs are shy, and avoid players, unless you give them food, or provoke them.
They'll become provoked, if you attack them or their babies, and will turn hostile towards you.
They have a very high HP, resistance to knockback, and do a fairly high amount of damage. And they all increase depending on their species/size.
Their babies are pretty weird in that they don't look anything like their parents, and instead have strange stripes all over them.
Tapirs also LOVE water. They are great swimmers and can dive and use their snouts as snorkels.
I didn't exactly come up with this idea with a use in mind, but I have a few ideas:
They could be mounted like horses, and you could ride them across water. Maybe they could also carry stuff like Donkeys.
Or maybe they just give more leather than cows.
I did quite a bit of research for this one, I hope you guys like this.
