Penguin here.

Okapis are those weird (and adorable) animals that have zebra legs and antelope bodies, and yet are more closely related to giraffes. These guys are absolutely adorable, if funky looking. Here is a special treat. I’m not posting a picture of an okapi, but instead a video of a baby okapi standing for the first time on its wobbly legs. Not only do you get to see this, but you get to see his caring mother proudly cleaning him as best she can. Enjoy!

Video c/o the Cincinnati Zoo in 2008.
