The world's tallest mammal with a very long neck and legs. Its body is covered with a latticce patern consisting of large irregularly shaded patches separated by networks of light coloured bangs. The color and structure of the patterning is very variable but several subspecies can be recognised based on distinctive regional difference. The Maasai giraffe can easily be recognized by its star-shapes spots. See more images!
