Laimo – “King of Nothing”; a Malayan Tapir born on Christmas day.
He is born black and white in colour, with eyes though small, but sharp.
He has a character of its own, dislike to follow suit and seemingly easy to get jealous.
People call him strange, but in fact he is very kind in nature. He enjoys sleeping all day, and do nothing but eat.
He can be really lazy, simply lying on this tummy all-day and does not move, but when he does, he does it in the cutest manner.
