Three beautiful Giraffes walk in the desert shows the front and back giraffes in almost identical positions. The middle giraffe has its’ tail flicked up. You see, in this black and white fine art photograph, the giraffes contrast perfectly against the light grass and sky. Making their dark figures appear as the obvious focal point. The wispy light clouds linearly spread through the sky. Therefore, adding an overall softness to the photograph. Overall, the Giraffes Walk In The Desert is a complementary and harmonious photograph.

A few interesting facts about the worlds tallest mammal:

  • Although they have a much longer neck than humans. Indeed giraffes share the same amount of vertebra in their necks as we do.
  • Their tongues have a length between 45 – 50 centimeters / 17 – 20 inches long!
  • A giraffe’s heart weighs approximately 11kg / 24 pounds, which means it is the biggest heart out of any land animal. It can pump 60 liters of blood around its body every minute. A giraffes blood pressure is twice that of an average human.
  • Not only are they herbivores, but they also eat bones. They need more calcium and phosphorous than a vegetarian diet provides. We know this behavior as osteophagy.

The giraffe, Giraffa camelopardalis, is in the category vulnerable in the IUCN red list.
