okapin. [Native name on the borders of Belgian Congo, possibly the same word as Mpongwe okapo lean.].
     A peculiar mammal (Okapia johnstoni) closely related to the giraffe, discovered in the deep forests of Belgian Congo in 1900. It is smaller than an ox, and somewhat like a giraffe, except that the neck is much shorter. Like the giraffe, it has no dewclaws. There is a small prominence on each frontal bone of the male. The color of the body is chiefly reddish chestnut, the cheeks are yellowish white, and the fore and hind legs above the knees and the haunches are striped with purplish black and cream color.  [Webster 1913 Suppl.]


okapi, n. (pl. same or okapis) a ruminant mammal, Okapia johnstoni, native to N. and NE Za{iuml}re, with a head resembling that of a giraffe and a body resembling that of a zebra, having a dark chestnut coat and transverse stripes on the hindquarters and upper legs only.
