The okapi (pronounced oh-COP-ee) is a beautiful and unusual animal. With its white-and-black striped hindquarters and front legs, is it related to zebras? No! Take a look at an okapi’s head, and you’ll notice a resemblance to giraffes. The okapi is the only living relative of the giraffe. This beautiful okapi stuffy stands at about 12 inches tall and is made from recycled water bottles - a purchase you can feel good about too!
