Fancy winning RM10,000? Well, here’s your chance.
All you have to do is put on your thinking cap and come up with a great name for this cute, little baby Tapir.
The Tapir was born earlier this month at the 23-acre 99 Wonderland Park located in Pusat Bandar Utama, Kuala Lumpur.
Following the birth of the female baby Tapir (Tapirus indicus), the park has since come up with the “Name Our Baby Tapir” contest where one stands to walk home with RM10,000.
“Hi, I am the new born baby tapir in 99 Wonderland Park Wildlife in the City,” read the park’s official Facebook page.
“I wanted to share something with everyone. When I am young, I will not look like my mum or my dad. I look different. And once I start to grow up, I will change my colour to be more like my parents.”
“NAME OUR BABY TAPIR CONTEST & WIN RM 10,000”

According to JL99 group executive chairman, Datuk Seri Jeff BK Lee, the contest was organised to celebrate the birth of the tapir.
He said winners will be announced on April 27 in conjunction with World Tapir Day.
He said the park had permission from the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (Perhilitan) to borrow and exhibit the tapirs in the park.
“In January 2020, we received two tapirs, Mr Junior and Puan Peradong. After more than a year, Puan Peradong gave birth to her daughter, which is yet to be named,” he said.
Lee said the park has decided to leave it to all Malaysians to come up with a name and walk away with RM10,000 cash prize.
Baby tapirs will live with their mothers for six to eight months before becoming independent.
The Malayan tapir was first listed as endangered in 1986 due to the decline of available habitat, forest fragmentation, and prevalence of hunting.
