The giraffe (Giraffa) is a genus of African even-toed ungulate mammals, the tallest living terrestrial animals, and the largest ruminants.

Giraffes are usually found in groups. Traditionally, the composition of these groups has been described as open and ever-changing.

Giraffes were thought to have few social bonds and for research purposes, a “group” has been defined as “a collection of individuals that are less than a kilometer apart and moving in the same general direction. [Source]

3. THE SALTWATER CROCODILE

Earth’s largest living crocodilian and, some say, the animal most likely to eat a human is the saltwater or estuarine crocodile.

Average-size males reach 17 feet and 1,000 pounds, but specimens 23 feet long and weighing 2,200 pounds are not uncommon. [Source]

4. Ostrich

The flightless ostrich is the world’s largest bird. They roam African savanna and desert lands and get most of their water from the plants they eat.

Though they cannot fly, ostriches are fleet, strong runners. They can sprint up to 43 miles an hour and run over distance at 31 miles an hour. [Source]

5. African Elephant

African elephants are the largest land animals on Earth. They are slightly larger than their Asian cousins and can be identified by their larger ears that look somewhat like the continent of Africa.

Elephant ears radiate heat to help keep these large animals cool, but sometimes the African heat is too much.

Elephants are fond of water and enjoy showering by sucking water into their trunks and spraying it all over themselves. [Source]

6. World’s Biggest Spider

In a world where even the smallest spiders can provoke a fearful shriek, Theraphosa blonditakes scare tactics to a whole new level.

This South American tarantula holds the record for world’s largest spider. Other spiders might have longer legs, but T. blondi‘s large body means its overall weight can reach 6 ounces (170 grams). [Source]

7. Brown Bear

It is the most widely distributed bear in the world.

The world’s largest brown bears are found in coastal British Columbia and Alaska, and on islands such as Kodiak. [Source]
