How long, pray, would a man hunt giraffes if he could?
In the giraffes the separation of the horns from the skull may be a degenerate character.
The nobles hunt antelopes with leopards, and giraffes and ostriches with horse and greyhound.
One of the leopards licked her hands, and the man in charge of the giraffes lifted her up in his arms so that she could feel their ears and see how tall they were.
A few elephants, giraffes and zebras (equus burchelli - the true zebra is extinct) are still found in the north and north-eastern districts and in the same regions lions and leopards survive in fair numbers.
