looks kind of like a zebra, or maybe a horse, but the okapi is actually more
closely related to the giraffe. Like the giraffe, the okapi has a very long
tongue that can reach out and pull tender new leaves off forest trees (it
can even use its tongue to groom its ears!). Their main habitat is the rain
forests in northern Zaire, where this animal mostly roams alone and is
protected by the government.
