ANIMAL WORLD - OKAPI







T
he okapi wash its own ears with its fourteen-inch-long tongue. It also uses the tongue to flick flies from its withers, clean its face, and reach the tender shoots of tall shrubs and trees. The okapi has a shape reminiscent of giraffe. It is smaller and has a shorter neck. It is deep reddish brown with black-and-white zebra-striped legs.

Mayroon po ba nito sa zoo natin?

Haven't seen one!

Nathan said...

Hoping to see one, too!

It's probably a crossbreed of zebra and giraffe. What do you think?

Darrel is right! Di ba sa atin may animal na tinawag na zebrankey dahil breed ng zebra at donkey!
