The Schleich® figurines are all modelled in finest detail and encourage children to play and learn at the same time. The Okapi is a small forest giraffe. Particularly remarkable is the striped fur on its hindquarters, which resembles a zebra. Okapis live in a small area in the African rainforest and eat leaves, fruits, ferns and mushrooms. The animals are very shy and were therefore not discovered until 1890.
