OKAPI by Steve J O'Brien, via Flickr

The okapi is a mammal native to the Ituri Rainforest, located in the northeast of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, in Central Africa. Although the okapi bears striped markings similar to zebra, it is most closely related to the giraffe.

O Ocapi (Okapia johnstoni) ou girafa da floresta é uma das duas espécies remanescentes da família Giraffidae, sendo a outra a girafa. É nativo das florestas húmidas do nordeste da República Democrática do Congo, e era conhecido somente pelos habitantes locais até 1901. Esta obscuridade levou a Sociedade de Criptozoologia a adotá-lo como seu emblema. Seu nome deriva do som que produz. O Ocapi é reverenciado como um símbolo nacional no Congo.
