In the wild, okapi are mainly solitary and occur alone or in mother-offspring pairs, usually only coming together for mating.

In the wild, okapi are mainly solitary and occur alone or in mother-offspring pairs. They primarily only come together for mating as males and females spend very little time together.

Although they are not social animals, okapi can tolerate each other in the wild and may even feed in small groups for short periods of time.

10% of an okapi’s total time is spent with other animals.
