Who is the observer?
The Masai giraffe is the largest subspecies of giraffe, making it the tallest land animal on earth.
It is native to East Africa. The Masai giraffe can be found in central and southern Kenya and in Tanzania.
It has distinctive, irregular, jagged, star-like blotches which extend to the hooves.
Unfortunately, the Masai giraffe population declined 52% in recent decades due to poaching and habitat loss.
