The wonderful and hardy Highland cow
The beautiful Highland cow also available in colour
The Leicester Longwool is a relatively hardy breed of Sheep and able to cope with cold conditions. But is not best suited to prolonged wet periods. This lovely animal is living on a city farm in Leicester. Animals have woolless white faces and legs and both sexes are polled. There is also a black strain of the breed. The wool is popular with hand spinners and well suited to direct marketing of woollen products.

The tallest land mammal on the planet is the Giraffe, which can grow up to 16 and a half feet or 5 meters. There are nine subspecies of Giraffe some of which are on the endangered list. Some zoos rightfully are playing a part in their conservation, where they can live a happy and predatory free life from Humans and other animals.
