Good Morning!  Here I am...still well enough to be bored, but sick enough to not to do anything with my boredom!  I've spent a lot of time on the Cafe though and it led to the "Super Quiz Question of the Day:
 What animal has the neck of a giraffe, the stripes of a zebra, the body of a donkey and a tongue longer than a backpack?  This mixed-up mammal is an okapi, one of the rarest animals alive, according to writer, Angela Adams.

Krumbs and I love strange and unusual animals and the okapi definitely fits the bill!  We found the okapi on the Café (of course), but their real home is located in one small area of the world.  The okapi live in the rainforests of the African Congo which is part of the reason why we know so little about this strange looking creature. 

We followed links to the San Diego Zoo and the St. Louis Zoo and found some awesome pictures!  Are you looking for an odd, strange and unusual way to start your day?  Visit the Café and read Angela Adams’ article, “The Most Mysterious Mammal” to meet the mixed up mammal that gives a whole new meaning to unusual!
