Unusual Giraffe Patterns
Wild Nature Institute's giraffe conservation research monitors more than 3,100 individual giraffes in the Tarangire Ecosystem of Tanzania. We are unable to identify most giraffes by eye in the field because of our very large sample population, so we rely on computer pattern-recognition software to match each giraffe's spot patterns and identify the individual after we return from surveys and process the photographs. However, there are some giraffes who stand out from the rest because of their unusual patterning, and we can instantly recognize them in the field. Below are photos of three singular female giraffes in the Tarangire region with striking, highly distinctive patterns, and we are always happy to see them on our surveys.
