If someone ask you, ‘What is the tallest in the world?’, I think you have giraffe is. Yes, you’re right. Giraffe or Giraffa camelopardalis is an African mammal, the tallest of all extant land living animal species, and the largest ruminant. Giraffe usually inhabit savannas, grassland, or open woodlands extends from Chad in Central Africa to South Africa.
Giraffe is a social animal, like us. They live in groups, gather around a food source. As you knew, giraffe has extremely elongated neck, which can be over than 2 meters in length, wow! Giraffe has a pair of prominent horns called ossicones. The appearance of the horns is reliable of method to identifying the sex of giraffe. With the females displaying tufts hair on the top of the horns, but the males horns are larger and tend to bald on top. Giraffe also has slightly elongated forelegs, and can reach a sprint speed of up to 60 kmh. Hmm… I think giraffe can be a very good sprint athlete. More that it, giraffe has a unique coat. Its coat pattern has large, four sided spots of chestnut brown on an off-white background and no spots on inner sides of the legs or below the hocks.
Some people said that giraffe resembled deer. Do you agree with it? I think we have various opinions about it. People said that giraffe resembled deer because deer having large antler like ossicones. I told you in the front that giraffes are herbivores. The usually feed on high trees like acacia. Giraffe have babies to reproduce, because they are mammals. Until now, there are about 80.000 giraffe remain in total in the world. Hmm… we must watch over the population of giraffe so they will not be extinct.
