The giraffe is also a record holder among animals in the World - it’s the tallest. The male can be as tall as 5,3 meters and can weigh up to 1,500 kg. There are nine different species of giraffes - but in Tanzania you will find the Masai Giraffe (the tallest of all) and the Kilimanjaro Giraffe only.

The funny fellow on the photo is (to be honest) a Rothschild’s Giraffe, it’s not living in Tanzania and it’s portrayed in Nairobi National Park, Kenya. The Rothschild’s Giraffe has an extra horn in the forehead.
