- A baku (獏) is also a mythological Japanese creature said to eat dreams and nightmares. As a chimera with an elephant's trunk, a rhinoceros' eyes, an ox's tail, and a tiger's paws, they resembled somewhat the real-life tapir. After the two creatures were connected, the Baku was more and more often depicted as a tapir. Modern images depicting Baku as actual chimera are rare.
