21 Reticulated Giraffe at Philadelphia Zoo in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Meet Gus, a reticulated giraffe. His ancestors are from the savannas and grasslands of southern Africa. However, he is a native-born Texan from Caldwell Zoo. He now lives at the Philadelphia Zoo with his wife, Stella, and their daughter, Abigail or Abby for short. Together, this family weighs about 4,500 pounds. They spend half their day using their 18 inch tongues to strip leaves off trees. The rest of the time they take short catnaps while standing.
