Weird Animals – Top 10 Bizarre African Animals

#3 – Okapi

Weird Animals in Africa

The Okapi looks like a science experiment gone wrong. Although it might look like it is closely related to the zebra, okapis are in fact relatives of the giraffe. Like giraffes, its long neck makes up most of its 8.2 ft tall height. It has a chocolate coat with horizontal stripes and rings on the legs and white ankles.

The few remaining okapis roam the forests of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. They feed on leaves, buds, grasses, fruits and fungi. They do not produce much sound other than occasional chuffs and infants bleat when they are under stress. Their main predators are leopards and humans.
