Ghazali The Giraffe

          My name is Ghazali. I am a giraffe. I am very tall. I am the tallest living animal on earth. My height is almost that of three tall men.

          I live with another two giraffes. We form a small group. I am a herbivorous animal. I eat leaves. I do not eat meat.

        My height is of great advantage. It is because of my height that I can eat the leaves on tall trees. Although I have a long neck I have exactly the same number of bones in my neck as men do. I just have longer bones.

        I have a very long tongue. I can move it a long way out of my mouth. I curl my tongue around leaves and pluck the leaves off trees with it. I do not like lions. They sometimes chase me. I have no be eaten by a lion.
