Live HD streaming webcam showcasing Masai giraffes at the Houston zoo in Texas.
The Masai giraffe ( Giraffa camelopardalis tippelskirchi ) comes from southern Tanzania and Kenya in East Africa.
Giraffe ‘horns’ aren’t actually horns at all – they are called ossicones, which are formed by cartilage and covered in skin. Giraffes spend most of their lives standing up; they even sleep and give birth standing up.
