What is the scientific name of the Giraffe?

The scientific name for a giraffis is Giraffa camelopardalis. Remeber that when writing scientific names you want to use italics (or unline it if you're writing by hand) and to capitlize the genus, but not the species.

The story I always heard for the species name of giraffes is that the Romans saw the animal as a mix between a camel and leopard, hence camelopardalis.
