Okapi in NC!

This may take a couple of years, but I’ll be patient. And as soon as the okapi arrives, I’ll be off to the Zoo! I’ve only seen okapi once in my life, in the early 80s in London.

    Well, yeah, okapis are pretty cool, I guess, but they’re no match for the viscacha! Which animal other than the vizcacha can look so dignified yet so cute? (Hint: none.)

    Caviomorpha really don’t get the recognition they deserve; though I did notice that Richard Dawkins has a chinchilla (it’s on YouTube), and there are some capybara posts on ScienceBlogs; but when a species as boring and ugly as the dog gets more attention than the entire parvorder of the wonderful caviomorpha, something is clearly horribly wrong! (Yet another nail in the coffin of the idea of a benevolent and omnipotent creator!)

    Vizcacha makes great soup too. Or is that gazpacho? I always get ’em confused. Which one is the cute one again?
