-A Giraffe-Giraffa camelopardalis, family Giraffidae. It is the tallest living animal.
Late Middle English: via Latin from Greek kamēlopardalis, from kamēlos ‘camel’ + pardalis ‘leopard’
Used in a sentence:
“Well, I’m off to the steam-powered camelopard races!”
It’s not a camel. It’s not a leopard. It’s a camelopard!
