Giraffes

Comparison of a Giraffe to the size of a human with dimensions for overall height and width

Giraffes, the world’s tallest mammals, are known for their long necks and legs, ossicone horns, and distinct spotted coat patterns. Roaming open savannas and woodlands in herds, giraffes forage for leaves, fruits and flowers at treetop heights that other mammals cannot reach. Giraffes typically grow to heights between 18’-20’ | 5.5-6 m, have a body length of 7.5’-8.5 | 2.2-2.6 m, and weigh between 1,750-2,800 lb | 795-1,270 kg.
