Image of a young giraffe frolicking around, taken at the Longleat Wildlife Park, which is located in Wiltshire UK.

The giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis) is an African even-toed ungulate mammal, the tallest of all extant land-living animal species, and the largest ruminant. Its scientific name, which is similar to its archaic English name of camelopard, refers to its irregular patches of color on a light background, which bear a token resemblance to a leopard’s spots, and its face, which is similar to that of a camel. In addition to these features, the giraffe is recognized for its extremely long neck and legs and prominent horns. The giraffe stands 5–6 meters (16–20 ft) tall with an average weight of 1,200 kilograms (2,600 lb) for males and 830 kilograms (1,800 lb) for females. The giraffe is classified under the family Giraffidae along with its closest extant relative, the okapi. Nine subspecies of giraffe exist and they all differ by size, coloration, pattern variations and range.
