This was the largest known prehistoric giraffe. It was very heavily built with short legs and a large head, with moose-like 'antlers'. They were in fact ossicones, the horn-like structures surviving giraffes have, bone covered with skin, although if the males fought with each other the skin probably rubbed off the tips in time. This genus was found from Africa to Asia from a few million years to less than a million years ago, with numerous species; this is the largest one with the most elaborate ossicones. Watercolour.
