Giraffe enjoying a little morning breakfast on the Mara. Such a beautiful animal but always hard to give scale of how big they really are. First branch of this tree has to be a good thirty feet off the ground. Thanks to these guys, all the tall trees seem to be perfectly pruned ! .

Giraffe sleepovers are the best kind of sleepovers! Especially when the giraffe is trying to steal the lettuce from your dinner. #MurphMonster #giraffeofinstagram #subway

Day 20 - Limerick 03
Now turn to the tall giraffe
With grasshopper's wings,
Why walk, he thought, in grassy fields
When I can fly in rings

A great capture of the water flick as a urgently raises its head from drinking by @safariwithsafwanah. The neck is of course the standout feature this amazing animal but perhaps surprisingly it contains the same number of vertebrae as a human’s neck but the bones are simply much larger. What is different is that the giraffe is unique in having an organ at the base of its skull that regulates blood flow into the brain. This is because a giraffe has a very strong heart and high blood pressure to push blood flow all the way up that neck, but when the animal drinks, gravity would cause a major overflow of blood into the head - the special organ steps in here and stops the giraffe from fainting! Drinking nevertheless remains a dangerous activity for a giraffe - the position it is forced to adopt due to its long legs leaves it vulnerable to attack and slow to escape if needed. Watch a giraffe at a waterhole and count just how many checks it makes of the surrounds before indulging. .

Can't really believe we haven't featured a giraffe silhouette against the sunset yet - it's a mandatory safari view! This lovely one is by @lewingtonphotography. Giraffe necks are, of course, very long but they actually have the same number of vertebrae in the neck - seven - as humans, it's just that the bones are much larger. They are also less dense and contain little bone marrow to ensure the neck is as light as possible. The tongue measures an incredible 20-inches - perfect for wrapping around an acacia branch and shredding the leaves off of it...!

We love Etosha National Park in Namibia 🇳🇦 and wanted to start this #etoshaexplorer community to feature park visitors' photographs and stories because it's a bit under-represented compared to some of Africa's other fantastic national parks.
