16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Giraffe Daycare

We encountered a family of giraffes in Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda. In the photo, there are two adults with a lot of babies all hanging out together. The babies belong to other adults in the group but they like to play with other young ones! This is a species of giraffe that is endangered, known as the Rothschild Giraffe, so it was very special to see them.
