Description The giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis) is an African even-toed ungulate mammal, the tallest of all extant land-living animal species, and the largest ruminant. Its scientific name, which is similar to its archaic English name of camelopard, refers to its irregular patches of color on a light background, which bear a token resemblance to a leopard's spots, and its face, which is similar to that of a camel.

DiDi Higginbotham, Fort Worth Texas Member Since February 2010 Artist Statement I am also on FAA and http://www.zazzle.com/DiDi_Higginbotham Society6 and BlueCanvas My website: http://1-didi-higginbotham.artistwebsites.com/ *********** I have been painting most of my life. My love for animals has been a natural gravitation to painting them almost exclusively. Many of my paintings have been commissioned, and most have special stories. My subjects are from various places. I am an active supporter of animal reserves,sanctuaries and rescue groups. Many of my animals are from these places, I visit zoos and on occasion can be found wandering around in the wild. Some of my images only reside in my fertile mind and it does get crowded in there sometimes. (o: Most of my paintings are acrylics. I also enjoy photography and sharing what I see.
