The answer to the questions for today are:
- Even though I can outrun them with my long strides and speeds of up to 35 mph, what animal is largely considered my main predator in the wild? A Lion of course...
- The ancient Romans believed I was a hybrid of a camel and a leopard (which they referred to as Camelopardalis,") but in actuality, my closest animal relative is what? I will give you a hint... we actually have some here at the zoo, and they are of the "striped" variety. My good friend the "Okapi" is my closest relative.
