Virtually any child can identify the giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis), popular in children's picture books, and as cuddly toys. Its popularity is understandable. We all recognize the giraffe as the world's tallest land animal, with their cute looks and funny way of splaying their legs to drink. Giraffes are popular exhibits at zoos all over the world.
