🦓🐎🦒 This is an Okapi, the bizarre animal looks like another fantasy world creation, but can be found in the Democratic Republic of Congo. With their striped legs, extended neck and large ears, they are often described as a hybrid of a zebra and a giraffe. Indeed, when British explorers discovered this odd creature back in the 1800s, nobody believed them when they described the creature upon their return home. Threats from logging and hunting have placed Okapis on the endangered list, although efforts to protect them in designated national parks are proving successful thus far.
