In January 2015, the Fort Worth Zoo welcomed a female giraffe calf. Dilly, meaning “great” or “magnificent,” was born a towering 6 feet tall and with a heart-shaped marking on her neck. See if you can spot her with the rest of the herd in the African Savannah exhibit.
The giraffe is the tallest of all living land animals. Its legs alone are often taller than most humans. The average height of a mature adult giraffe ranges from 15 to almost 20 feet, with males being taller than females.
