You might ask is this some kind of zebra?? The Hansa Okapi soft sculptured plush has been designed to resemble the realistic Okapi which is actually related to the giraffe family. Feast your eyes on the beauty, majesty, and "wow" evoking realism, that "speaks" to you thru the hands of the artists who patiently endow each item with its own unique "personality". With black and white stripes on its front and back legs and the larger head like a giraffe, this is a very cool stuffed animal.
The okapi (pronounced oh-COP-ee) is a beautiful and unusual animal. With its white-and-black striped hindquarters and front legs, it looks like it must be related to zebras! But take a look at an okapi’s head, and you’ll notice a resemblance to giraffes. The okapi is indeed the only living relative of the giraffe.
