西非长颈鹿的英文介绍 Introduction

The West African giraffe, Niger giraffe or Nigerian giraffe ( Giraffa camelopardalis peralta ) is a subspecies of giraffe distinguished by its light colored spots, which is found in the Sahel regions of West Africa. In the 19th century it ranged from Senegal to Lake Chad, yet in 2011 this subspecies only survives in a few isolated pockets containing about 310 individuals in total. Its last self-sustaining herd is in southwest Niger, supported by a series of refuges in Dosso Region, and the tourist center at Kouré, some 80 km southeast of Niamey. All captive supposed "West African giraffe" are now known to be Kordofan giraffe (G. c. antiquorum).
