Starring: In Association With Discovery Channel
Across the world scientists, activists and biologists dedicate their lives to studying some of the world’s rarest, most endangered species. Through years of close observation these individuals, often working against traditional scientific thought,have come to understand their animals better than anyone.They are the CHAMPIONS OF THE WILD.
The giraffe is an African even-toed ungulate , the tallest of all land-living animal species, and the largest ruminant. Males can be 4.8 to 5.5 metres (16 to 18 feet) tall and weigh up to 1,700 kilograms (3,800 pounds). The record-sized bull, shot in Kenya in 1934, was 5.87m
(19.2 ft) tall and weighed approximately 2,000 kg (4,400 lb).  Females are generally slightly shorter, and weigh less than the males do.The giraffe is related to deer and cattle , but is placed in a separate family,the Giraffidae, consisting only of the giraffe and its closest relative, the okapi.Its range extends from Chad to South Africa. Giraffes can inhabit savannas, grasslands, or open woodlands. They prefer areas enriched`with acacia growth. They drink large quantities of water and, as a result, they can spend long periods of time in dry, arid areas. When searching for more food they will venture into areas with denser foliage.
