Interesting animal nicely captured Gautam.
Looks like a cross between a deer and a zebra.

You're welcome. This animal shows the resemblance in the first image when reaching up for a snack from the crown of the tree.

Thanks Lyn. They live only in a small area of Congo & discovered by the Europeans in 1904 though local people knew them and called them Forest giraffe. They are an endangered species
