  • Giraffe in Fathala West Africa

    GIRAFFES

    Giraffes use their height to good advantage by browsing leaves and buds in treetops. The 21–inch (53 cm) tougue helps them pluck tasty morsels from branches. Giraffes eat most of the time, and like cows they regurgitate food and chew it as cud.

  • Fathala Baby Warthog in Senegal

    WARTHOG

    Warthogs are widespread all over Africa. The males can be distinguished by the 4 warts on the side of its face where females only have 2 warts. They are omnivorous and not scared of chasing lions away to get a chance for a drink of water.
