Caption

Silhouettes of giraffes (Giraffa camelopardalis) drinking, reflected in the water surface. The giraffe is the tallest living land animal. It can grow to a height of 5.5 metres and weigh over a tonne. It feeds mainly by browsing on the twigs and leaves of trees. To drink it must splay its legs wide and tilt its head below its body. A network of blood vessels controls blood flow during this movement, preventing the blood pressure in the brain from becoming dangerously high while drinking, and preventing fainting from low pressure when it pulls its head back up. Filmed in Zimanga private nature reserve, Kwa-Zulu Natal, Southern Africa.
