The Story of the OkapiBook - 2016
This series describes animals that were once thought to be myths or hoaxes. This book looks at the okapi: the first time it was reported to the Western world, the public and scientific community's reaction to it, the search for evidence, how the animal was finally recognised as a real species, and its current status today. There is also some information about the okapi's life and what makes it special or different.
