Moreover, genetic evidence suggest that what was previously thought of as one widespread species may in fact consist of four, or perhaps as many as eight different giraffe species. Several of these new species are at grave risk of extinction if threats persist and thus in urgent need of conservation attention. The North Carolina Zoo is helping to protect giraffes in Tanzania by assessing their population health and helping rangers on the ground reduce poaching.
These striking giraffe print edible cake strips are fantastic for decorating the sides of a cake as an alternative to using a ribbon. Useful tip: We suggest covering your cake at least 24 hours before attaching your print with edible glue to prevent rippling. If you have ordered other items at the same time as this, these items will be sent out with your edible print.

David Spencer, lead technician at Bernie's City Garage in Vacaville, uses a powered hand scraper Friday to strip the paint from the fiberglass giraffe sculpture that was damaged in March at the Nut Tree Family Plaza. Spencer has been tasked with repairing the damage, which included both of the front legs and several stress fractures on the front and underneath the torso that required him to a one-point climb inside the structure. Once he has finished removing the old house paint, the foot animal will be repainted using automotive paint and a clear coating. Originally installed at the family plaza inthe sculpture was built in Thomasville, North Carolina, and assembled at the Nut Tree.
The Giraffe is Truly Unique by Roddy Smith O ne of the mysteries of the Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia is that neither giraffe nor wildebeest have ever been recorded there, although the habitat is entirely suitable and both occur to the north, south and west. Giraffe is World's Tallest Among the theories as to why the giraffe is absent are that they were unable to get down the escarpment, and that the valley floor becomes too soggy for them in the wet season; neither is entirely convincing and neither explains the absence of wildebeest, which as far as I know are found everywhere else that plains zebra occur. Whatever the reason it is a pity; the giraffe in particular is an African icon, instantly recognised around the world.
Main Characteristics Giraffes are the tallest of all land living animals. They have a body length between 3. Giraffes have long legs, a sloping back and an extremely long neck.
The giraffes have been positioned in various locations around Colchester, as part of the Stand Tall project, which officially launched on 2 June this year and will run until 26 August. The project is also being used to raise vital funds for the zoo's conservation charity, Action for the Wild. Each giraffe is then designed by a specially commissioned artist and will bear the name of its sponsor.
One of nine described subspecies, all of which can easily interbreed. The closest living relative is the okapi. Everything about a giraffe is longer or taller than other animals! Because of their height, giraffes do not have to compete for food.
So this stems from my large amounts of spare time and random thought process. I make a lot of stuff out of other random things. Why I haven't added them on here
