    I read in a recent National Geographic issue that each giraffe species will only mate with their own type. That each type has a distinct shape of the patches to tell them apart.
    I can't understand it, since afterall they are all the same, aren't they? It's not like they are two different animals.

    They look the same to me but then again I'm not a specialist in giraffe's. I don't see why there can't be a variety within the species though as it is a way of the world.
