Reticulated Giraffe


Reticulated Giraffe - We captured this young giraffe at a wildlife park in the Texas hill country. We found he was fond of romaine lettuce so he gave us a lot of attention till the lettuce ran out. I think they said he was around 15 months old and in the wild they can live to over 20 years and longer in captivity. The color on a giraffe is sort of brown to reddish polygon shape spots broken up by white lines. The male giraffe can reach a height of between 17 to 19 feet and females around 14 to 17 feet. In the wild a herd of giraffe can be seen from a good distance away. Their diet is primary the acacia tree where they have no problem reaching to top of the trees where other herbivores cannot reach. Reticulated Giraffe are from the eastern, central and southern parts of Africa and today there are only about 9000 of them left. The San Diego Zoo started a conservation project to try and protect them by training and hiring the Kenyans to monitor and capture images of giraffes along with other species in a database. They are also ask to remove snares and let them know of poaching in the area. This species is on the decline today we hope it will turn around in the near future. Their decline is mostly from habit loss, and illegal hunting. The giraffe have a large range which includes wooded areas, savannah, and grasslands mostly looking for their favorite food the acacia trees.

Canvas wrap

Canvas wraps are printed on white archival poly-cotton blend matte canvas. The canvas is wrapped on a 1.5" stretcher framed and finished with a durable black backing. The gallery wrap arrives at your doorstep ready to hang. After an order is submitted, the canvas usually arrives within 5-6 business days. While canvas wraps are more expensive, there is no need for matting and framing. After a fine art print is matted and framed, the cost is often equivalent or even slightly more than a canvas wrap.
