A Giraffe’s pattern and colors are best expressed at dusk or dawn.  That is all.

Giraffe

Definitely one of my favorite animals to watch when on Safari.  Majestic and huge, towering well over any vehicle, these animals are elegant and completely silent.  They have no vocal chords and how they communicate with one another is still a mystery to scientists the world over.  Although their necks are so long, they actually have the exact same amount of neck vertebrae as we humans have.  Males and females can be told apart by their horns.  A males horns will usually lack the tufts of fur on the ends as a result from ‘necking’ with other males in combat.  Females do not show aggression and manage to retain the fluff on their horns.
