All our giraffes at Alabama Safari Park are reticulated giraffes. Native to the Horn of Africa, they are recognizable by their distinct coat pattern of large spots outlined with white lines.
In the Wild
Approximately 8,500 reticulated giraffes reside in Somalia, southern Ethiopia and northern Kenya. They live mainly in savannas, rainforests, woodlands and seasonal floodplains. Giraffes rarely lie down to sleep but rather doze throughout the day.
