Mammal Monday, Okapi, also known as the forest giraffe or zebra giraffe. It is most closely related to the giraffe. Okapis have scent glands on each foot that produce a tar-like substance to mark their territory.
I’ve been taking pictures of these beautiful gar specimens today. Most of them contorted and formed to fit in the jars they’re in. But these spiraling forms remind me of the same forms of fantasy twisting water dragon illustrations.
ehmeegeethebrainscoop I opened my college newspaper today and freaked out when I saw that you are in it!! Bill Nye just did a lecture at my small college, Elmhurst College, and the article recommends The Brain Scoop, MinutePhysics, and Veritasium as things to watch if you’re a Bill Nye fan! I’ve never been more proud of my newspaper; they really did their research!
