Okapis often travel up to half a mile each day along trails used for generations. A scent gland on each foot leaves behind a sticky, tar-like substance wherever they walk.
Okapi newborns can stand up within 30 minutes of birth and will nurse for the first time within an hour of birth.
The tongue of the okapi is so long that it can actually lick its own ear!
The okapi seems to be a blend of various animals – part zebra, part donkey, and part antelope – but its closest living relative is the giraffe.
