The Giraffe is the tallest of all animals. Males have been recorded as growing up to 5.5 metres in height and weighing over 1000 kg. Giraffes are characterised by their extremely long neck, long legs and distinctive spotted coat pattern.

The long neck of a giraffe allows them to eat plant species that are can't be reached by other animals.
