Giraffes are some of my favorite animals to view in the bush. Besides being beautiful they are graceful and just seem to do everything in a slow and gentle manner.
It is impossible for a giraffe to lie down completely as their heart would have to work too hard to pump blood all the way up the neck to the brain. So the best they can do is sit down in the grass and relax.
While out in South Luangwa National Park in Zambia we came across this giraffe just relaxing and enjoying life. This is truly the definition of “chilling.”
