Here are photos of two giraffes that caught my eye when in Selous. The first one had striking dark markings which made me zoom in for a closer look and the second looked as though it had just come back from the hairdressers :)

Here's a pair of Reticulated giraffes

Nigerien/West African giraffe - Koure, Niger 2015  

Martha......hold still!! It was the breeding season after all. On this morning and all in close proximity, I counted a tower of 72 Giraffe with the males all having but one thing on their mind.

Interesting animals. I've never seen such a long and luxurious mane.

It's a giraffe syrup :)

 

Here's a shot I took in KPN which helped Clay Wilson out - a giraffe with Papilloma Virus.

The brown patches on males get darker as they get older.

If I remember, I will post a couple of pics from South Luangwa showing the same when I get home.

Old one, no?

 

The "long" mane, looks more like a Bobby Charlton/Donald Trump style combover rather than hippy style, ZaminOz - but isn't it a girl anyway?

Not sure if this is 'unusual' or not, I haven't photographed many Giraffe! :)

The only unusual aspect of this photo is that the tongue isn't right up the nostril! :P

Fantastic giraffe photos.

 

Divewop reticulated giraffe are a particular favourite of mine and these 2 look like freshly scrubbed crazy paving stones - beautiful picture, thanks for sharing.

These giraffe photos were taken in Kruger.

 

These males were testing their strength and it seemed to take place in slow motion

We witnessed this strange behaviour by giraffes in KTP. They chew on bones to get calcuim and phosphorus. It is called osteophagia due to defficiency in phosphorus
