Tallest Mammal

The tallest mammal is
the giraffe (Giraffa
camelopardalis), found
on the African
savanna. The tallest
specimen ever
recorded was a 5.8-m
(19-ft) male named
George, who was
received at Chester
Zoo, UK, in 1959.
George was orginally
from Kenya. On
average, mature
giraffe males grow to a
height of around 5.5 m
(18 ft). Their long
necks possess no more
than the usual seven
vertebrae found in
most mammals, but
each one is greatly

 Highest Mountain
Mt Everest, in the Himalayas is the highest mountain
in the world. It has been measured to have a height
of 8,848 m (29,028.8 ft). The mountain was formed
around 60 million years ago and has been the
destination for adventurers for centuries. It was
named after Sir George Everest (the British surveyorgeneral
of India), in 1865. To the Nepalese, it is
known as Sagarmatha (meaning “goddess of the sky”)
and the imposing mountain is known in Tibet as
Chomolungma (meaning “mother goddess of the
universe”).Fastest Land Mammal
The fastest mammal on land is the cheetah
(Acinonyx jubatus). When measured over a short
distance the cheetah can maintain a steady
maximum speed of approximately 100km/h (62
mph) on level ground. However, research
completed by Professor Craig Sharp of Brunel
University, London, UK in 1965 recorded accurate
speeds of 64.3 mph (29 m/sec or 104.4 km/h) for a
35-kg (77-lb) adult female over a measured
distance of 201.2 m (220 yards or 660 ft). These
speedy cheetahs are found racing through the open
plains of sub-Saharan Africa, Iran, Turkmenistan
and Afghanistan.
