Horse – Zebra – Giraffe Cross Breed – The Okapi – So Strange!

This strange animal looks like a zebra, horse, giraffe hybrid. It is an Okapi!

The Okapi (Okapia johnstoni) is little known because it was one of the most recently discovered of all large mammals – not discovered until the 20th century. The okapi’s closet relative is actually the giraffe. Their shape is similar to that of a giraffe, but with a shorter neck. It has a long, flexible tongue. The tongue is so long that the animal can washits eyelids and ears. They are big over 8 feet long and can stand up to 6.5 feet high. They are also called the African unicorn. When first discovered they were thought to be donkey or a forest zebra. They are forest animals living in the African Congo.
