We saw them at the San Diego Wild Animal Park. Pretty cool looking beast, almost like a giraffe/zebra hybrid. It's actually a relative of the giraffe. Here's some more information on it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Okapi What's the most unusual animal you have ever seen?

It got down to 38 degrees last night, and this morning I was talking to my friend Bob (he's my friend and his name is Bob; that's why I call him my friend Bob) and I said "I ain't never seen no Okapi before, but it got so cold last night I saw a politician with his hands in his own pockets, and ain't many people ever seen one of them before". My friend Bob agreed.

They are pretty rare. The only one I know of is the San Diego Wild Animal Park. Good luck!
