They have orange-brown spots clearly defined from other spots by white lines, creating a net-like pattern. They also have spots going down their legs.

Giraffes are hunted occasionally for their pelt and tails, and they are also slightly impacted by habitat destruction.

Reticulated giraffes are found in the Savannahs and open woodlands. Prefer open areas where they can use their huge eyes to see any predators approaching.

I am an amateur photographer living in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

I enjoy photographing the wonders of the world around me; whether that means capturing images of animals and wildlife, scenic natural landscapes, or man-made wonders.

I travel all over Canada in pursuit of this passion and my dream is to one day be able to do this full-time.

Thank you for your interest in my work,
Alyce Taylor
