Okapi

Okapi Okapi are mammal relatives of the giraffe, but do not stand as tall or have elongated necks. They are primarily brown with white and black stripes on their hind quarter and legs. They stand close to five feet tall and have and average body length of eight feet. The male okapi have short, fur-covered horns on their head.

They live their lives in isolation from other okapi, except to procreate. Okapi live among the mountainous tropical forests of Ahelia. They feed on tree leaves, grass, and fruit. Okapi are often prey for larger and more ferocious animals, but due to living higher in the mountains, they safe from a majority of the common predators that live at lower altitudes.
