Well, I used to be nicknamed Rob the Frog, so I will try, with my very long tongue...;-)

Okapis are fascinating! I tried to photograph them at the Lisbon Zoo, but they were almost hidden protecting their new born calf.

Okapi. Now, this is an animal I would not have been able to identify.

The easiest way to not feel lonely would be to have an okapi as a pet and go for walks with one!

I think that's a skill I'm glad I don't have.

Fascinating creature - it looks like a cross between a zebra and an anteater.
