Masai Giraffe | Kagoshima City's Hirakawa Zoo
5 Meters Tall with a Long Neck, Right in Front of Your Eyes
The tall and slender Masai giraffe. At over 5 meters tall, they are the tallest animal in the park. It is said their necks evolved to be long enough to eat the vegetation at the top of trees. At over 40cm long, their tongues can wrap around branches and snap them off to be eaten. With their tall necks, they tower over the fences and will often come close to the fences for you to see. This will surely provide a feeling that you've come to an African savannah.
