Okapis are medium-sized giraffids. They have long necks and large ears, while their coats are various shades of brown, striped with white on their legs and ankles, with additional white on their face, throat, and chest.

In The Lion Guard

Okapis have been described as strange-looking creatures that resemble giraffes, zebras, and oryxes. Their tongues are blue-black.


In the Real World

Okapis are herbivores that feed off of leaves, buds, grasses, fungi, ferns, and fruits. They are primarily dinural animals.

In The Lion Guard

Okapis are the favorite food of a leopard. They are rare animals who spend much of their lives hiding. There aren't many of them, even in their primary residence outside of the Pride Lands.
