Meet Forest, the world's tallest giraffe

Jul 30, 2020 17:54 IST

Meet Forest, a 12-year-old giraffe with a world record! Standing tall at 18 feet and 8 inches, Forest just won the Guinness World Records title for being the tallest living giraffe. He was born in 2007 at the Auckland Zoo and is currently living at Australia Zoo in Queensland. To put things in perspective, his height is the same as four mini cars stacked from the ground! To measure his height, the staff had to create a special measuring pole. The air was celebratory as the big announcement was shared by conservationist Bindi Irwin on Facebook.
