The Thornicroft giraffe (G. c. thornicrofti) got its name from a native commissioner for the British South Africa Company named Harry Scott Thornicroft. This giraffe, commonly known as the Rhodesian giraffe, is one of the smallest subspecies of giraffes in the world. These giraffes are only found in Zambia and are isolated from all other giraffe species by 400 kilometers in any which direction (Fennessy et al,, 2013). Giraffes have been known for their extremely long necks and unique spots, but many people do not know much beyond that. We will be introducing in depth information about the Rhodesian giraffe and some fun facts as well. Our journey will begin with the classification of the Thoricroft giraffe.
