“The okapi, Okapia johnstoni, is a giraffid artiodactyl mammal native to the Ituri Rainforest, located in the northeast of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, in Central Africa. Although the okapi bears striped markings reminiscent of zebras, it is most closely related to the giraffe.”
I didn’t even know these animals existed! He kept hiding, so these were the only shots I got of him, but isn’t he just beautiful? I don’t get out much, haha, so this guy was just fascinating to me. While reading a little about him at the Zoo, we found out that he’s part zebra and giraffe.
