Artist's Description

The Rothschild’s Giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis rothschildi) is one of the most endangered giraffe subspecies with only a few hundred members in the wild.
(Featured in Animals of Africa, & Other Groups.)
A successful program is being conducted in Kenya, to help save these amazing animals.
The Rothschild’s subspecies is paler than other sub-species, the orange-brown patches are less jagged and sharp in shape and the connective channel is of a creamier hue compared to that seen on the Reticulated Giraffe. In addition, the Rothschild Giraffe displays no markings on the lower leg, giving the impression that it is wearing white stockings. They are also taller than other subspecies, measuring up to six metres tall (20 ft).
