Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

As of 2016, there is not just one species of giraffe. There are four: reticulated (seen here), Masai, northern, and southern. Their long necks give them an advantage for feeding and may help in self-preservation. Their heads, set so far above their bodies, might as well be small, watchful drones, ready to warn of approaching predators. [2017]
