Majestically Tall

A silhouette of a male giraffe, the tallest living animal. #Giraffes are both browsers and grazers. From an article I once read that a giraffe can be identified as either male or female from a distance away simply by its stance while eating, Males concentrate on leaves from the highest branches, while the females arch their necks to eat closer to the ground. I am yet to conclude this hypothesis.
However, at longer distance, you can identify a male by the bump on their heads. Males develop calcium deposits that form bumps on their skulls as they age.
