That chap in the yellow frame there is a tapir. Tapir, a nocturnal hoofed mammal with a stout body, sturdy limbs, and a short flexible proboscis, is native to the forests of tropical America and Malaysia. Tapir is officially classified as endangered or vulnerable species. Sign like this can only be found up in the Titiwangsa Range, on East West Highway connecting the state of Kelantan and small town of Grik, Perak in Peninsular Malaysia. The highway itself, being the highest highway in Malaysia, is expose to marauding wild animals like tapirs, elephants, deers and even wild boars. I found other unique signs with elephant and deer in the frames. However, this one I liked best.
