An okapi is worth a hundred other animals of any kind that one can name.
The okapi lives in pairs in the deepest recesses of the forest.
There were hunters from the forests of far-off Bongindanga where the okapi roams.
This creature, of which the native name is "okapi," is proposed to be called Ocapia johnstoni.
But, to their keen disappointment, no okapi made its appearance at the drinking-place that night.
I am bitterly sorry and disappointed to be obliged to say it, but I think there can be no doubt that we have lost that okapi.
short-necked giraffe of central Africa, 1900, from the animal's name in Mbuba (Congo). Reported by English explorer Sir Harry Johnston (1858-1927).
