The giraffe is the world’s tallest land mammal. Despite this, they are quite skittish and, every time Tony got close, the resident pair of giraffe at Leopard Creek, would run off.  We filmed this episode at least 3 times before we managed to get them to stand still.

You may have had a glimpse of a little bird on the giraffe’s neck. This is the Oxpecker and they have an extraordinary function! Click here to watch.
