Masai Giraffe

Giraffa camelopardalis tippelskirchi


Masai, as evidenced by its coat pattern. Alternate names are Kilimanjaro giraffe and Maasai giraffe, and they're actually the largest subspecies, with males hitting about 6 m in height.


Kenya and Tanzania and that's about it.


Baby Masai giraffe born July 2012 at the Houston Zoo. Isn't he just the sweetest?!
