The Giraffe is the tallest land animal, reaching up to 5 meters in height. 

With an extremely healthy population of giraffe at Mount Etjo, you can sometimes find groups of as many as 50 animals together.

Even with such a long neck, the giraffe only have 7 neck vertebrates , the same as us.

Giraffes do lay down to rest, but remain standing if they sleep.
