A fantastic replica of an amazing creature!
Our Plastic Giraffe
This giraffe stands almost 7 inches tall. It's made of sturdy plastic and is very durable. Because it's larger, it has more detail than our smaller plastic animals. This giraffe is hollow and therefore light weight.
Giraffes (Giraffa camelopardalis) are the biggest ruminant and the tallest mammal. They have very long necks with a short, upstanding mane. Their high shoulders slope steeply to their hindquarters. The head tapers to a point and they have a long, prehensile tongue. Their horns are solid bone and skin covered. Tails are hocklength, with a long tassel. Their brown to rich chestnut colored coat (old males are darker, even black) is dissected into intricate tapestry by patches and blotches of lighter hair. Each giraffe's markings are unique.
