Giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis)
Standing 330cm/130” tall at the shoulder, Giraffe have ‘horns’ at both sexes. The bull’s horns do not have as thick tufts of hair on the horn tips as the cow’s. Bulls are darker coloured. Old bulls have a distinctive smell – reason for them being referred to as ‘stink bulls’. Bulls fight by graciously swinging their heads towards each other, trying to topple the opponent. Although the tallest living mammal, Giraffe do lie down – especially in the heat of the day. Browsers. Giraffe prefer woodland and is not water dependant.
A very thick skinned animal with the heart situated high in the chest. Broadside shots only at close range and using heavy arrows and high poundage. Full frontal shots advised where the neck and the chest meet. Quartering away shots advised only if adequate shot placement can be ensured. They are very tough and wounded animals will survive for a very long time.
