Exotic Wildlife

Masai Giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis)
The tallest mammal in the world, it's (error, should be its) striking stature graces the savannas as it forages for leaves in high tree branches.  A single young is born after a 14-15 month gestation period.  After birth the young stay with their mother and other females and their young in a herd for at least three years.
