      Depends on his/her opinion about gay marriage...:D

      What's the German for 'Get Off!' :D

      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.
