Giraffes are some of the best-known, well-loved animals of the African safari. But today, many variations of these long-necked herbivores are listed as vulnerable or endangered due to habitat depletion and poaching.
This June, to celebrate our animal of the month, we bring you an interactive road-map to the anatomy of the giraffe. Click on each of the icons below to discover information from OUP’s various titles on these patchwork creatures, from hooves to horns:
