Giraffe - Description
The giraffe is a genus of mighty alfalfa, currently the highest of all terrestrial animal species. According to the 2016 report, as well as the attention of naturalist David Attenborough, giraffes are a very endangered species, they have even disappeared in 7 countries.
The giraffe is ruminant and is genetically related to deer or cow. Giraffe males range from 4,8 to 5,5 meter and weigh up to 900 kilograms (a record person shot 1934 in Kenya was a high 5,87 meter and weighed about 1000 kg). Females are generally a little smaller and lighter.
Traditionally, the giraffe was considered to be one species with 11 subspecies, of which nine are generally recognized. The 2016 study, however, has found that the species of giraffe are four: Northern giraffe, Southern giraffe, Masai giraffe and giraffe netted
