 The Okapi is an herbivorous mammal found only in the tropical forests of northeastern Zaire, and it is one of only two surviving members of the giraffid family.   

For the first two months of their existence they nurse infrequently and do not defecate; this helps them hide from predators.  Okapis can use their long tongues to wash their eyelids and clean their ears.  They also have scent glands on their hooves that they use to mark their territory by secreting a tar-like substance.
