• Meet the Miracle Okapi!

Have you ever heard of the okapi before? It’s a kind of animal found in Africa.

They’re like the size and shape of a small horse, but they’ve got little antlers like giraffes and some stripes on their back legs like zebras.

The Houston Zoo had a baby okapi named ‘Miraq’, which means miracle in French. He’s called that because his mom has heart problems and the zoo people thought she’d never have babies because of it.
