Illustration Daily: Giraffe

A newborn baby giraffe is about 6’5″ and 220 lbs, essentially the size of Usain Bolt after a really big dinner. Usain would have a pretty close race if he tried to take on a giraffe. Bolt has a record-winning top speed of 27.79 mph, while a full grown giraffe can occasionally reach nearly 35 mph (for a short distance).
