WHAT DOES GIRAFFID MEAN IN ENGLISH?

giraffid

Giraffidae

The Giraffidae are ruminant artiodactyl mammals that share a common ancestor with deer and bovids. This biological family, once a diverse group spread throughout Eurasia and Africa, contains only two living members, the giraffe and the okapi. Both are confined to sub-Saharan Africa: the giraffe to the open savannas, and the okapi to the dense rainforest of the Congo. The two species look very different on first sight, but share a number of common features, including long, dark-coloured tongues, lobed canine teeth, and horns covered in skin, called "ossicones".
