I've always loved giraffes with their long bandy legs and necks like periscopes. If you're going to live in the wilds of Africa and are not top of the food chain, I guess being a giraffe is probably your best bet. Although lions like a bit of best end of neck for their Sunday dinner, I'll put my money on old long legs putting up a good fight and flight.
It's also to their advantage that they are without the sought after tusks, horns and skins that put their fellow savanna-dwellers on the endangered list which is truly something to be grateful for.
I don't paint enough animals. I feel a shift coming on... Much as I have enjoyed the poppies, the plains of the Kalahari are calling!
