From the Disney Parks Blog:

Today is World Okapi Day, and I believe there’s no better way to celebrate this magnificent animal than announcing the birth of one more!

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is celebrating the birth of a rare okapi, who was born on Oct. 1 to mom Zelda. Weighing in at 54 pounds, the calf was up and mobile within the first hour of his birth. He has been nursing and bonding with his mom. The pair will remain in a backstage habitat for the next few months before joining the animals on the savanna.
