AWKWARD YET GRACEFUL
Giraffes (Giraffa camelopardalis) are the world's tallest mammals. They are well known for their long necks, long legs and spotted patterns. It is estimated that there are approximately 80,000 giraffes living in the wild. Unfortunately, this is half the numbers in 1999. This decrease can be caused by poaching, human growth and development, urban encroachment and loss of habitat due to degradation.
