Hi Friends this month we can share the okapis of our collections, cheers cheers So we must make pics of that fabulous animal sunny sunny
Characteristics
-Okapis are herbivores

- They prefer altitudes of 500 to 1,000 m, but may venture above 1,000 m in the eastern montane rainforests.

- They have reddish dark backs, with striking horizontal white stripes on the front and back legs, making them resemble zebras from a distance.

The body shape is similar to that of the giraffe, except okapis have much shorter necks. Like the giraffe, the okapi has long legs and a robust body.

Okapis are 1.9 to 2.5 m (6.2 to 8.2 ft) long.

-Okapis are primarily diurnal.

The okapi was known to the ancient Egyptians; an ancient carved image of the animal was discovered in Egypt.

Here are my pics of my Okapi is from schleich, I only have this but I would love have the papo ones bounce bounce Cool

At last, a composition model I won on a batch a few years ago. It was badly repainted so I didn't add it to my collection but was unable to let it go.

I began to repaint it because, it couldn't be worse... What a Face

A pic before I begin the painting
