The endangered okapi may be a close relative of the giraffe, but its legs look more like a zebra’s and it only reaches heights of about five feet (1.5 m). It is such a rare creature that it wasn’t officially discovered and classified until 1901, and it predominantly resides in one small area in central Africa.
