The giraffe is the tallest of all extant land-living animal species and is also the largest ruminant. Giraffes usually inhabit savannas, grasslands, or open woodlands. Male giraffes grow up to 5.5 metres tall, females between 4 and 4.5 metres. Giraffe gestation lasts between 400 and 460 days. A newborn giraffe is about 1.8m. tall and within a few hours of being born, a calf is usually able to run around. A giraffe’s coat is made up of brown blotches or patches separated by lighter hair. Each giraffe has a unique coat pattern. Besides the lion, man is the main threat to the giraffe, because their tails, skin and meat are prized in various cultures. In some, giraffe tails are seen as lucky charms and they are also used as fly-swatters.
