Tapirus indicus Skull Replica measures 17 inches. Tapirus indicus Skull Replica is museum quality polyurethane resin cast. Made in USA. Cast of an original California Academy of Sciences specimen. 2-part skull (separate cranium and jaw). Known as the Malayan Tapir.

Tapirus indicus is easily identified by its markings, most notably the light-colored patch that extends from its shoulders to its rear end.

The rest of its hair is black, except for the tips of its ears, which, as with other tapirs, are rimmed with white.

Tapirus indicus are primarily solitary creatures, marking out large tracts of land as their territory, though these areas usually overlap with those of other individuals.
The Tapirus indicus is the largest of the four extant tapir species and grows to between 5 ft 11 in and 8 ft 2 in. in length, not counting a stubby tail of only 2.0 to 3.9 in. in length, and stands 2 ft 11 in to 3 ft 7 in. tall.

Tapirus indicus typically weighs between 550 and 710 lb, although some adults can weigh up to 1,190 lb. The females are usually larger than the males.

Like other tapir species, it has a small, stubby tail and a long, flexible proboscis. It has four toes on each front foot and three toes on each back foot. The Malayan tapir has rather poor eyesight, but excellent hearing and sense of smell.

Tapirs mark out their territories by spraying urine on plants, and they often follow distinct paths, which they have bulldozed through the undergrowth.
Exclusively herbivorous, the Malayan tapir or Tapirus indicus forages for the tender shoots and leaves of more than 115 species of plants, moving slowly through the forest and pausing often to eat and note the scents left behind by other tapirs in the area.
When threatened or frightened, the Malayan tapir or Tapirus indicus can run quickly, despite its considerable bulk, and can also defend itself with its strong jaws and sharp teeth.
