Giraffes in the moonlight
The giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis) is an African even-toed ungulate mammal. The Giraffe is the tallest living terrestrial animal and the largest ruminant. The species name actually refers to its camel-like appearance and the patches of color on its fur.
However, it’s most distinguishing feature is its extremely long neck and legs, its horn-like ossicones, and its distinctive coat patterns. It is classified under the family Giraffidae, along with its closest extant relative, the okapi. The nine subspecies are distinguished by their coat patterns.
