The okapi (pronounced oh-COP-ee) is an unusual creature that no other can copy! In nature, the Okapi is around 5 feet tall—approximately the same size as a horse—but the okapi stuffed animal by Wild Republic measures up at 12 inches. Okapis have extremely long tongues to assist them with foraging and bathing, but your okapi plush toy was made surface-washable for easy cleaning, minus the okapi tongue bath. Scientists did not even know of this anti-social animal until 1900, but the okapi stuffed animal by Wild Republic is not nearly as elusive! This rainforest-dwelling animal would make a great gift for all ages as well as an excellent addition to your science classroom. Okapis are solitary animals in the wild, but this plush toy is ready to be your cuddling companion today. Wild Republic has been developing animal plush and educational toys for kids of all ages since 1979, with a unique specialization in realistic stuffed animals.
