Africa's Gentle Giants
Keith W Stump

Here is a "tall" problem for evolutionists! The giraffe is certainly one of the earth's stranger creatures. When people first see one at a zoo, their general impression is, "It's all legs and neck!" That's basically true. The giraffe is by far the tallest living creature on earth. Have you ever wondered where the name giraffe came from? It is derived from the Arabic word zirafah, which can mean "creature of grace" or "one who walks swiftly." In Swahili - an African language spoken in areas where the giraffe lives in the wild - the tall beast is called twiga, The scientific name for the giraffe is Giraffa camelopardalis. In the Latin language, camelopardalis means "spotted camel." This name goes back to the days of ancient Rome. The emperors of Rome occasionally exhibited strange animals in the Colosseum during the halftime break between gladiator fights.
