Caption: Giraffe, 16th century artwork. Captive giraffe being led on a rein. The giraffe is native to sub-Saharan Africa, though captive specimens had been brought to Italy in Roman times, and later to Florence in the 15th century. This is a woodcut from Cosmographie de Levant (1556), an account of travels in Asia, Greece, Palestine and Egypt by the French writer and explorer Andre Thevet (1502-1590).
