A Gerenuk (Litocranius walleri) reaches up with its long neck to eats some foilage from a tree in its exhibit at the Miami MetroZoo in Florida, USA.
Gerenuk means "giraffe-necked" in the Somali language. It is also called "swala twiga" or giraffe gazelle in Swahili.
Though normally shy, these graceful animals are easily observed in Samburu National Reserve in Kenya and in various other semi-arid areas of East Africa, including parts of Tanzania, Somalia and Ethiopia.
