  1. A beautiful Okapi baby. They have some of the best knee socks in the animal kingdom :-)


    As many of you smart people already know, this is a baby okapi. Interesting factoid from the Wiki entry:

    The tongue of the okapi is also long enough for the animal to wash its eyelids and clean its ears (inside and out). This sticky tongue is pointed and bluish grey in colour like that of the giraffe. Male okapis have short, skin-covered horns called ossicones. They have large ears, which help them detect their predator, the leopard.
