Giraffe - the Impossible Animal

Documentary about the giraffes of East Africa. The film looks closely at the lifestyle of the world's tallest animal, once believed to be the product of crossing a camel with a leopard, and investigates the problems of the giraffe's remarkable shape. How do giraffes drink if their heads are five metres above water, and how do they fight or sleep? Narrated by David Attenborough.
