Hybrid
Okapi – African animal related to giraffe, but with a shorter neck.
Defy – resist openly and boldly; especially in a baffling way.

Anticlockwise

I think I’ve walked into the wrong room. Whooaa the heat! It’s like the Earth moved a few million miles closer to the sun.

Ok…this must be the Africa room. Wait…that’s not right. A badger with the coat of a hyena? And what is that?! It looks like a zebra-giraffe hybrid. Hmm…the sign says it’s an okapi. It’s an actual animal?!

The animal kingdom really does defy the imagination.

Alright, enough of this anticlockwise Twighlight Zone nonsense. Time to get back to the spaceship.
