The first giraffes of the Buenos Aires Zoo date from 1911. Giraffes are animals that really call my attention, not only by the long neck, but they have a so pretty face.
This one was born at Palermo's Zoo and I think we can say it is "latino" giraffe.
I have photos from girrafes of Rio de Janeiro Zoo too, take a look here:

The always difficult question with giraffes is how to get them into the frame, so nicely done to capture this one as he leans down like this! A very nice animal portrait, and even the bonus of an ostrich for background interest.

Great capture, Andre!
He fits the frame perfectly and the lush green background is amazing. I think he does look "latino" with those black velvet eyes:))
