Abstract:

Subfamily Giraffinae is a monotypic subfamily, represented by a single surviving species, the Giraffe Giraffa camelopardalis.

The Giraffe , Giraffa camelopardalis, is the only extant representative of the genus Giraffa. Together with the only other living giraffid, the Okapi Okapia johnstoni, they represent the extant members of a previously more diverse group. This chapter covers a complete overview of modern day giraffe including distribution, anatomy and physiology, ecology, and current conservation status.
