No, the tallest land mammal in the world isn’t one of the Big Five. Still the gracious giraffe is one of Africa’s most cherished animals. They stand over 5 meters (around 17 feet) tall and weigh about 1500 kilograms (3400 pounds). Amazingly, like us humans and our fellow mammals, the giraffe only has seven vertebrae. Their remarkable circulatory system prevents a deadly blood flow to the brain while they bend over to drink. Females are smaller and often have a hairy tuft on top of their horns.
