I don’t have much to say about giraffes. I have seen them at zoos and they are, in a word, amazing.
I read that they are the largest mammal. I am not sure if this included whales in the oceans. The whales seem to be larger. On land, giraffes are the largest.
Mr. Giraffes is about 16 to 20 feet tall and weighs in at around 3,500 pounds. Ms. Giraffe weighs in at about 1,800 pounds.

All of the pictures are from Wikimedia Commons. Except for the first one.
