Real Giraffe Leg - Forelimb
The giraffe is the tallest terrestrial animal living today, reaching heights up to 19 feet (5.8 m). Native to Africa, the giraffe feeds on leaves that are out of reach for most other herbivores. Their long tongue allows the giraffe to delicately pluck foliage from amongst the sharp thorns of the Acacia tree. The horns, or ossicones, of the giraffe are bumpy hair-covered knobs that grow slowly throughout its life.
