Contender 1: Giraffe

The giraffe is a majestic, long-necked mammal known for its exceptional height, which makes it the tallest land animal in the world. Adult giraffes can reach heights of up to 18 feet. Their unique appearance is characterized by a patterned coat with patches varying in color from orange and brown to lighter hues. Giraffes have long legs, a sloping back, and a small hump on their shoulders. They are native to Africa, primarily found in savannahs and woodlands, where they graze on leaves, fruits, and flowers.

Fun Fact: Despite their long necks, giraffes have the same number of neck vertebrae as humans, which is seven. Each vertebra can be up to 10 inches long.

Contender 2: Tiger

The Tiger is a large and powerful big cat, known for its distinct orange coat patterned with black stripes, which are unique to each individual, much like a human fingerprint. Tigers have a muscular build, a heavy head with strong jaws, and a tail that is usually about half the length of their body. The largest species of the cat family, adult male tigers can reach up to 10 feet in length and weigh up to 660 pounds. Tigers are native to various parts of Asia and are adept swimmers, unlike most members of the cat family.

Fun Fact: Tigers are apex predators and primarily consume larger mammals for food, including deer and wild boar; a hungry tiger can eat as much as 60 pounds in one night.
