Welcome to Wicked Giraffe! This site is dedicated to the world’s tallest animal, an incredible beast which measures up to 5.5 metres tall. That’s equivalent to about eighteen feet. It’s an animal which is difficult to appreciate in pictures and videos and the ultimate way to view one is to take a safari.
That was exactly where I first encountered these creatures during a safari in Kenya in 1987. We’d seen a variety of other animals, elephants, rhinoceros, ibex but the thing that grabbed my attention was the tall spindly creature chomping at a leafy branch and undisturbed by our presence. Alongside it was a baby giraffe, known as a calf.
Since then I’ve endeavoured to find out all I can regarding this amazing creature and recently I decided to upload all my accumulated knowledge onto this website.
Gradually all the information I’ve collected will be available on this site so please visit us regularly if your interest in this fabulous creature is as enthusiastic as mine.
