What's the German for 'Get Off!'

When I saw this mixed exhibit of Giraffe/Okapi many years ago I didn't think much about it- but in retrospect it now seems a strange mixture given they don't co-exist in the Wild. I imagine they may be the only zoo with this mix- if its still going as the photo indicates.

They used to be kept together in Paris and I remember seeing a photo very similar to this one in a zoo book somewhere

A few years ago I've seen a male Kudu mating with a female zebra, the hybrid was called a Kubra, but didn't survive.

I believe production of young from such a mating is not possible.

I know. It was just a Joke, I've forgot to write "Attention-A Joke" behind my posting, I'm Sorry for that.

@Tarsius, do we have to write "Attention Irony" after a post? or just "Attention-not-funny"

@lintworm: Depends on the individual reader's touchiness and humor; of the two, one seems to be over- and the other underdeveloped in some zoochat members...
So, let's see who is going to feel offended by the next joke:

"Can anyone spot the dropped soap on the photo?"
