    Due to their stature and distinctive coat pattern, it was once believed that the giraffe was a cross between a camel and a leopard – hence their Latin name of Giraffa Camelopardalis. The first giraffe was brought to Europe by Julius Caesar in 46 BC. The giraffe came from Alexandria and formed part of a triumphant return to Rome, after years of civil war.
