When fully grown, Bakari can be up to 19 feet tall and weigh around 2,800 pounds. That is enough to make giraffes the world’s tallest mammal! In the wild, a reticulated giraffe like Bakari can go many days without drinking water. Since they are herbivores…

Since they only grow up to about 30 centimeters, they eat smaller animals like lizards, eggs, snails, and small snakes.…
