Few animals are as easy to love as the giraffe. These guys are beautiful, unique and generally friendly and eager to interact. The scientific name of the giraffe is Giraffa camelopardalis largely because they have characteristic of both the camel and the leopard. They are also the tallest land animal, growing up to 20 feet tall!

They eat twigs, leaves and other types of vegetation. They are not very vocal animals but they can make sounds, especially when they are calling their young back to them.
