Giraffes! They define tall...

             
       
                 
 

... but they have
the same number
of cervical vertibrae
as humans do - seven!

     
                 
   
                 
     
A group of giraffes
is called
a tower!
   
While a baby stays near its mother...        
     
  ... a young male turns
discretely away while
an oxpecker bird cleans
around his privates!
   
 
                 
Life goes on as animals share intimacies and earth and air and water.
