How do okapis protect themselves?



  1. 0 Votes

    The only natural predator of the okapis is the leopard.  Although an okapi is no match for a leopard, it does have a few defense mechanisms.  Firstly, the okapi is a very large animal, almost as big as a horse, and, when travelling in groups, its size can deter potential attacks.  Secondly, the okapi has powerful legs which can be used to kick attacking leopards.  Finally, okapi can run at about 40 miles per hour.
