From the forest giraffe to the flufftail: Shocking report reveals that 21,286 animal species are under threat of extinction

The report is compiled by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, which also found that almost 200 species of bird are now critically endangered.

Okapis are herbivores, feeding on tree leaves and buds, grasses, ferns, fruits and fungi. Although the okapi bears striped markings reminiscent of zebras, it is most closely related to the giraffe.

It's October 18th, World Okapi Day. Deep in the heart of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, hidden in the dense rainforest, lives the mysterious and enigmatic okapi. In the wild, this shy, elusive creature is rarely seen by humans. When people do see an okapi for the first time, most imagine it’s related to the zebra because of its stripes, but the okapi is not related to the zebra - it's related to the giraffe, and is in fact the giraffe's only living relative. Peace… Jamiese of Pixoplanet
