Okapiinthemiddleofvegetation.

Some people claim that bat looks


more like the rat, Splinter, from
TeenageMutantNinjaTurtle.

The okapi is a beautiful and unusual


animal, with its white-and-black
striped back and front legs, it looks
like it must be related to a zebra!
But look at the okapis head, and
youll notice a similarity to giraffes.
The okapi is the only living relative
of the giraffe. Like a giraffe, the
okapi has very large, vertical ears,
which catch even slight sounds,
helping the animal avoid trouble.
The okapi also has a long, dark,
flexible tongue, just like a giraffes,
to help it strip the leaves from the
shrubs of its rain forest home.
Scientists did not know of the
animal until the 1900. The secretive
nature of okapis and the difficulty
most humans have of traveling in
their habitat have made okapis hard
to observe in the wild.

If you cant explain it to a six


year old, you dont understand
ityourself.

Like other fruit bats, though, it
disperses seeds from the fruit in its
diet, perhaps making the flying
mammal crucial to its tropical
rainforest ecosystem.The scientists,
whospenttwomonths in2009 inNew
Guineas littleexplored Nakanai and
Muller mountains, emphasized the
importance of the discoveries in the
battle to conserve the worlds
ecosystems. The new species should
serve as a cautionarymessage about
how much we still dont know about
Earthshiddensecrets.

The amusing name "Pinocchio frog" is


not without purpose. The males of
these frogs have a highly distinctive
physical appearance. Their long
snouts are reminiscent of those of the
famed character. When they vocalize,
their nosestipup.Whenthey'resilent,
their noses look down. If a male
Pinocchio frog'snoseis looking down,
then he's probably in a calm mood,
rather than an animated one. The
exact reasonforthesefrogs'unusually
lengthysnoutsisnotcertain.

Okapis are hard to find in the


wild. Their natural habitat is the
Ituri Forest, a dense rain forest in
central Africa. Okapis are very
wary, and their highly developed
hearing alerts them to run when
they hear humans in the distance.
