• Short Summary

    A look at a strange animal called the Okapi at London Zoo, shortly before it died.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'Meet THE OKAPI!'

    London Zoo.

    Various shots of an Okapi called Congo at London Zoo. The animal looks like a gazelle with a giraffe head and striped legs and hind quarters like a zebra. Commentator says the Okapi is apparently the missing link between a pig-like animal that lived about 6 million years ago and the giraffe.

    Commentator says they have just heard that the Okapi is dead so only these pictures will remind us of his brief stay here (how sad!).
