Sivatherium is one of the adoptable animals featured in Zoo Tycoon 2: Extinct Animals. It highly resembles the Giraffe or Okapi, except for the moose-like ossicones on the top of its head. The Sivatherium lived more than 8,000 years ago and was the largest member of the giraffe family that ever lived. Unlike the long and lean giraffe, the Sivatherium’s body was stout, and its legs were relatively short. It looked more like a heavily built antelope, and its powerful shoulders and short, strong neck supported a broad, heavy head with wide ossicones, or hair-covered horns. Not content with one set of ossicones, the Sivatherium had an extra pair of bony growths that protruded above its eyes. Its closest living relative is the Okapi, or forest giraffe.
