Lounging Around

Mid-morning in the South Luangwa National Park, Zambia, these three Thornicroft’s Giraffes were seen sitting together, which was most unusual. Usually a mother and her foal may be seen sitting down but rarely three adults.

Giraffe – Giraffa camelopardalis

Thronicroft’s Giraffes are Luangwa Valley’s unique sub-species. Giraffes are the biggest ruminant and the tallest mammal. Very long neck with short, upstanding mane, high shoulders sloping steeply to hind quarters, long legs nearly equal in length. The male weights up to 1900kg and the female 1200kg. Horns: solid bone, skin covered, a main pair in both sexes but female’s thin and tufted male’s thick and bald on top. Possible scent glands on eyelids, nose and lips.

Nikon D4, 16 megapixel resolution, FX format, Sigma 50-500mm f4.5- 6.3 APO DG OS lens @ 340 mm, 1/2000th sec @ f10, ISO 1250
