I don't know if this has been posted yet, but I found this very intriguing. I think that this gives weight to an animal a lot of people think is more of a myth than Bigfoot, the Chupacabra, or Loch Ness.

It looks more like a kangaroo to me.

HA HA.. in a way it does. I am just interested that actual scientists found an animal of this nature. I guess we will just have to wait and see if they get any more pictures to find out if it has a pouch.

Yeah, expecting the images very soon, keep us updated.

Okapi is not a Unicorn, and it's not an animal previously unknown to science either. It's more like a giraffe with a short neck and some zebra-like stripes.

The first living okapi was brought in the western world as early as ninety years ago, in 1918, and currently there are several of them in various zoos in Europe and North America. Nobody can possibly think of okapis as unicorns!

However, there is actually an animal that resembles the mythical unicorn as it only has one single "horn", namely monodon monoceros, or narwhal.

My mistake, but the report made it seem otherwise. I had previously never heard of this animal before. Typical media sensationalism. After reviewing your link, I did a search of the Okapi from Wiki as well. It looks like there were others before that called them the African Unicorn though... and there is a source link through the site as well that gives a lot more info on those referring to it as the African Unicorn. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I guess this thread can be closed.

Plus a unicorn has to be a HORSE with one horn
Still pretty cool to have such good wild photos of such a rare animal

I photographed one at the Cincinnati zoo last month. I remember the sign saying that they may have evolved the stripes on their haunches as a visual marker to help their young follow them around.

Oddly enough, my photo looks very similar to the one in the article, with the okapi in the same position.
