Giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis) sitting down. The giraffe lives in dry grasslands with a scattering of trees. It is the tallest living land animal, and some specimens can reach over 6 metres in height. Their great height allows them to reach up to the tops of trees, and eat the highest leaves. Photographed in Ndumo, South Africa.
