Okapi Skull
BC-039 $400.00

Though not discovered by modern man until 1901, the Okapi is essentially a short-necked forest giraffe surviving since the Pleistocene. The giraffe's only cousin, they can be found only in the tall dense primary forests of the remote Ituri Forest of the Democratic Republic of Congo. They are approximately 8 feet long with a shoulder height of 6 1/2 feet and weights from 400 to 600 pounds. Their coat ranges from a dark rich chestnut color on the body to broad contrasting black and white stripes on their rear legs. These stripes are thought to serve as a marker for the young to follow their mothers through the dense vegetation of their habitat. Male okapis have short skin-covered horns (called ossicones) and glands on the bottoms of their cloven hooves that produce a tar-like substance used to mark their territories. Our BC male specimen was collected decades ago, and this is reflected in its meticulously reproduced patina. 2-part skull (separate cranium & jaw).
