Giraffes are also one of the many animals played up in pop culture in films, and cartoons. It is the tallest terrestrial animal alive and like the lemur, a part of the Madagascar film franchise. Former Friends castmate, David Schwimmer gave life to this camel like animal in the film series. It is an African based mammal, but lives in many parts of Africa to the west of Somalia. Its spotty appearance serves as camouflage for the herbivore, allowing them to blend into the shade of the savannah woodlands. Its neck is usually as long as 6 foot 7 inches. It is quite the intriguing animal.
