As the tallest mammals on Earth, giraffes use their brown, chestnut colored patches to camouflage from their predators in the savanna woodlands. Although some giraffe species are extinct and endangered, they are on the least concerned list.
OKAPI CALF: This rare forest giraffe also known as a okapi was the first of its kind born in North America in 2013. Now a little over three weeks old, the calf is learning how to "nest" at the Tampa zoo it calls home. This is a practice where young animals hide themselves from predators — an important skill in the wild and a good way to hide from cameras at the zoo.
