While their appearance is similar to a zebra, the okapi is actually more closely related to the giraffe. They are usually solitary animals, and the only time there are more of them in one place is when they start breeding. Unfortunately, they are also endangered animals, due to habitat loss because of logging, human settlement, hunting, and illegal mining.
