The giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis) is an African even-toed ungulate mammal, the tallest of all extant land-living animal species, and the largest ruminant. in the past 15 years, the population has plummeted some 40 percent, to less than 80,000 from 140,000 in the mid 1990s.

Its scattered range extends from Chad in the north to South Africa in the south, and from Niger in the west to Somalia in the east.
