Giraffe Black and White Wall Art – Standing Out – Limited Edition of 100
Standing Out – Giraffe Fine Art Print photographed in the Maasai Mara in 2016
Giraffes have always been among my favorite African animals. Watch their graceful walk! It almost seems like slow motion when they move their long legs across the rolling hills of East Africa’s savannah while swinging their long neck back and forth like a giant upside-down pendulum.
Giraffes are the tallest land animals. A giraffe could look into a second-story window without even having to stand on its tiptoes! A giraffe’s 6-foot (1.8-meter) neck weighs about 600 pounds (272 kilograms). The legs of a giraffe are also 6 feet (1.8 meters) long. The back legs look shorter than the front legs, but they are about the same length. A giraffe’s heart is 2 feet (0.6 meters) long and weighs about 25 pounds (11 kilograms), and its lungs can hold 12 gallons (55 liters) of air! Its closest relative is the okapi.
Giraffes have a small hump on their back and have a spotted pattern similar to that of a leopard. For a long time people called the giraffe a “camel-leopard,” because they believed that it was a combination of a camel and a leopard. That’s where the giraffe’s species name camelopardalis comes from!
The Giraffe Fine Art black and white print Standing Out has a limited edition of only 100. Most other fine art photographers have a much higher limited edition number. The lower the number the higher is the value of the print. Please also browse through my other limited editions Special Limited Fine Art Prints (edition of ONLY 25) and Exclusive Art Collector Prints (edition of ONLY 5).
