OKAPI (OKAPIA JOHNSTONI) from Dem. Rep. of Congo ~ The okapi, the giraffe’s closest living relative, is like a shorter, stripier version of its cousin. Okapis have dwindled to the lower hundreds in recent years, due to poaching and armed conflict in the DRC. The okapi’s notorious skittishness has earned it comparison to the mythical unicorn, and rightfully so: The entire species managed to go unphotographed in the wild until 2008.

The okapi /oʊˈkɑːpiː/ (Okapia johnstoni), also known as the forest giraffe or zebra giraffe, 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.
Okapi. Amazing animal

2- Giraffe is the tallest mammal which eats up to 75 pounds of food a day (typically Acacia leaves which is their food item) and uses its long tongue to eat the leaves of trees. Giraffe has a four chambered stomach and will regurgitate their food for additional chewing – similarly to a cow. Although, the giraffes get most of their water from the Acacia leaf, but will drink up to 10 gallons of water per day.

Explorers once believed that the beautiful Okapi was a magical, mythical creature assembled from the best parts of the other animals around it. They are, indeed, very real, but nonetheless spellbinding.

Okapi are the giraffes only relative. They have tongues long enough to lick their ears! They are solitary, wary, and live in isolated rainforests in central Africa. Because of this, a sighting of one is rare and there are only 155 in zoos around the world. They are around 5-feet at the shoulders and weigh 500-700 pounds, with the females being larger than the males. According to the San Diego Zoo, Okapi have a fondness for onions.

Okapi, Top 10 Rare Animals - Is it a giraffe? Is it a zebra? Is it a ziraffe? A gebra? It’s an Okapi! Ever heard of it? Apparently, the Okapi’s history reaches back to ancient Egypt, where carvings have since been found. In Europe and Africa, prior to the 20th century, there existed legends of an “African unicorn.”
Okapi. Wikipedia says: "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.">>>>>>>> The Okapi (Okapia Johnstoni) is one of my many favorite animals. I love to confuse people when I tell them my favorite animal is the Okapi. The Okapi ha been found in some Ancient Egypt pictures, then was recently found.

The opposite of albinism called melanism, a recessive trait where the skin and fur are all black. - what an interesting lion, wonder if he's accepted amongst his own

The opposite of albinism called melanism, a recessive trait where the skin and fur are all black. This is perhaps the most beautiful lion I have ever seen. I feel like they should make a Disney movie thats a prequel to “The Lion King” that focuses on Scar and Mufasa as children. This black lion could be their father, King Ahadi, which mates with a regular lioness and can account for Scars black mane that is a beautiful lion - Click image to find more Science Nature Pinterest pins

Rare WHITE lion - close up shot of watchful perfectly white face, seemingly inches from the photographer. White lions are NOT ALBINO. White is recessive but less severe mutation in same gene that causes albinism- distinct from gene responsible for white tigers. They vary from blonde to near-white. This color does not appear to disadvantage their survival.
