Caption

Courting giraffes (Giraffa camelopardalis). Male and female giraffe heads engaging in a courtship ritual. Giraffes reach sexual maturity after 3-4 years. The males fight for the right to mate with a female during the mating season. The gestation period is about 15 months. These herbivores are the tallest living land animals, some specimens reaching over 6 metres in height. This allows them to feed on succulent tree-top leaves. They live in loose groups of anywhere between two and fifty individuals, inhabiting the tree-dotted grasslands of sub-Saharan Africa. Photographed in the Kruger National Park, South Africa.
