a large necked animal that lives primarily in africa. It preys on eagles, hawks, parrots, and other birds. A common misconception is that giraffes use their long necks to eat leaves. However they actually use them to scope out birds nests in the tops of trees. Their horns are used for stabbing hawks out of the air (they are often worn down to stumps from killing hundreds of hawks/eagles.) They are responsible for the endangerment of many birds (most notably bald eagles and the california condors).`
Tourist: There are a lot of eagles in this area.
Park Ranger: Yep, the giraffes have migrated for the season.
