Rothschild's Giraffes, Lake nakuru, Kenya by 


Rothschild’s Giraffe, Giraffa camelopardalis rothschildi. Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya, East Africa. Heading to the Acacia trees to feed in the late afternoon.
Living in very few areas of Africa these giraffes are endangered. The population is potentially close to meeting the population threshold for Critically Endangered under criterion C, depending on the number of individuals, if any, that survive in south Sudan.
There are only about 700 in the wild. They have similar markings to the Reticulated Giraffe but are characterised by unpatterned legs, which looks like they are wearing knee-high white socks.
Canon 500D, zoom lens.
(Featured in The World As We See It, or as we Missed it.)
