A grazing Okapi (Okapia johnstoni) captured at the Copenhagen Zoo. From Wiki:

The okapi (Okapia johnstoni) is a giraffid artiodactyl mammal native to the Ituri Rainforest, located in the northeast of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, in Central Africa. Although the okapi bears striped markings reminiscent of the zebra, it is most closely related to the giraffe.

I once watched a documentation about the Okapis, where they were portrayed as the most boring animal in the world :'D unfortunately I still think they are kind of boring. But I like your shot anyway!

Yes, they seem to spend all day walking slowly around and grazing, but I think they are beautiful animals. Glad you liked it :D
