Lines and Patterns

The blotches, and the lines between them, on a giraffe’s hide are as unique as human fingerprints. These photographs were taken during our recent trip to the North of the Kruger National Park.




From lines to patterns” is this week’s photo challenge theme

      Thanks for visiting Penne! Yes indeed, there’s considerable regional variation in giraffe markings; giraffe from East Africa for instance have quite different coats than ours here in South Africa!



        Only seen a photo of this, so thanks for the vid! We met a bull blocking the road near the Rabelais water hole about a month ago, giving us such a stare we decided to wait instead of driving past. This is the first time I remember we didn’t want to get near a giraffe
