I am eighteen foot tall from my toes to my head.

I’m the one who sleeps least so I don’t need a bed.

    They call me a bull and my wife’s called a cow.

    Does this give you a clue as to who I am, now?


You will find me in Africa or perhaps in a zoo.

With my head in the clouds, I get a good view.

    I prefer the hot weather, eat leaves on the trees

    And with such a long neck, I can reach them with ease.


I think that by now you will surely have guessed

That I'm a giraffe who is beautifully dressed.

     In my suit of brown markings, with pattern unique,

     I’m both tall and I’m proud of my handsome physique.
