The Gerenuk, or Giraffe Gazelle, (Litocranius walleri) is an antelope, also called the giraffe gazelle, found in East Africa. Great photo from Flipped Out check it out on Flickr.
I’d never seen this creature before, so I thought I would share. Once you see the full body shot on the Wikipedia entry for the Gerenuk it’s not as impressive as the portrait here.
Great photo and interesting looking beast… thought I would share.
ROFL – I thought I was reading a Richard Attenborough script at the beginning…
It’s kind of cute, but I have too many animals in my house now.
