Giraffidae (giraffes and okapis)

Wikipedia Abstract

Giraffidae is a family of ruminant artiodactyl mammals that share a common ancestor with deer and bovids. This family, once a diverse group spread throughout Eurasia and Africa, presently comprises only two extant members, the giraffe (the only living species of Giraffa) and the okapi (the only known species of Okapia). Both are confined to sub-Saharan Africa: the giraffe to the open savannas, and the okapi to the dense rainforest of the Congo.
