Mind your head!

Gathered up close to each other and the tree, this group of Reticulated Giraffes seems particularly offended by the rain.   They can go for over a month without drinking, so one can suppose this is an inconvenience for them rather than a blessing.

They weren't angry enough to make any noise about it, However.   When they do vocalize, they only emit moans or low notes.

Giraffes most often sleep in standing positions.   It's a practical matter.   For Giraffes, sleeping in a standing position makes it a whole lot easier to get up in the morning.
