The name giraffe comes from the Arabic word ‘zirafah’, meaning the tallest of all. Reaching heights of 17 feet, these gentle giants tower over the animal kingdom.Recent genetic discoveries have found that there are four distinct species, all native to Africa – the Northern giraffe, Southern giraffe, Reticulated giraffe and the Masai giraffe.The latest in our Endangered Species series features the critically endangered Kordofan giraffe.
