Tapiroid (tapir):  This 5' tall, nocturnal biped travels in small family bands.  Being hemophiliacs, they are shy and secretive, and have evolved powerful mental mutations to avoid and deter conflict.

Tapiroids prefer heavily wooded environs, and often travel along lake and river bottoms to mask their travels.  Their prominent snouts can further elongate another 1-2' to serve as (rather clumsy) extra limbs, or makeshift snorkels.
