I made an Okapi (Rediscovered Giraffe thought to be extinct)

The Okapi is a small horse-like relative of the Giraffe that was thought to be extinct, but was rediscovered in the African Congo in 2006 after not being seen since 1959. Please enjoy!

    Very nice, good job. With the zebra one, looks like we might be able to have a small semblence of wild and exotic animals. Am going to download. Thank you.
    Don't Worry, Be Happy. Have Fun :D

    One of my favorite animals. I told my mom all about them when we went to the zoo and saw one. They are cool animals. You did an AWESOME job making one! :thumbup:

    Well great, someone just uploaded both my Okapi and my Okapi pattern under their own account and didn't give credit :?

    I was going by the number of large dark marks on the knees/ankles. I basically layered smaller and smaller alternating black and white marks on the legs and that's how it turned out. It kindof depends on the animal too, some have much larger black spots, and some are very light!

    Looks really nice! Maybe we can download all exotic animals and put them in the game where Sims can run an animal sanctuary or something like that? :)

    I like your okapi and I really like the facts about the animal.

    I made a Zebra and that's what my sim is going to ride around town!

    Also if any of you are going to want the Okapi for when you have sims, just click on "save file" instead of add to game. It will save the package file on your computer and you can just install it when you get pets!

    beautiful work littleV, at the time i know this wasn't an option but okapi had no mane - there has since come out a mod that allows for this http://www.morningstarequestriansims.com/tack-shop/pets-coats/manes/ - makes a big difference!
