Appearances can be deceptive

Flicking through a recent copy of National Geographic (no Heat or Hello for us at Happy HQ), we came across this little fella. So, what has a head like a giraffe, a body like a horse, stripes like a zebra and a blue tongue long enough to clean its own ears? The Okapi - a shy African herbivore - that is actually a genus of giraffe! So instantly, it's become a hit with us. There are roughly 15,000 roaming wild and are native to Africa with the Okapi Wildlife Resrve in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Just goes to show how versatile us giraffes can be!
