Coffee Bean (HNBM027) is an adult male desert-dwelling giraffe in northwest Namibia. He is a confident bull in the prime of his life, and stands tall with pride. While roaming his environment during the day, he is camouflaged by his cleverly designed spot patterns which blend with the dappled light of the desert. His bald ossicones (this is the correct name for giraffe ‘horns’) show us that he spends time participating in contests with other males for breeding rights. When not fighting for dominance, this gentle giant is often seen in the company of other giraffe, gracefully making their way along the dry Hoanib River while browsing their favourite trees.
