Little Okapi by DragonsAndBeasties Little Okapi by DragonsAndBeasties
This was a commission. Okapis are the weirdest looking critters... kind of a mix between a zebra, a giraffe, and a hyena(the face for some reason, maybe it was just the picture I was looking at? :XD: ). I love the markings though, and the big ears!

About 1.5 inches tall, made from Premo Sculpey

I love okapis.  I studied them in elementary school, and I've been thrilled to find them ever since!  Such cute creatures.  They are in fact related to giraffes.
