歐卡皮鹿是後腿上有像斑馬一樣條紋的動物,牠也有如馬或是驢子一般的頭部。
The okapi is an animal with stripes on its back legs like a zebra. It also has a head like a horse or a donkey.
 
然而,牠和長頸鹿同屬一科。
However, it is in the same family as the giraffe.
 
歐卡皮鹿有大耳朵以及長舌頭,事實上,牠們可以用 30 公分長的舌頭來清洗牠們的眼皮及耳朵!
Okapis have large ears and long tongues. In fact, they can clean their eyelids and ears with their 30-centimeter-long tongues!
 
牠們只棲息在剛果民主共和國,一個位於非洲中部的國家的伊圖里雨林中。
They only live in the Ituri Rainforest in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This country is in central Africa.
