Cameleopard, or Giraffe. A native of South Africa, usually 16 or 17 feet high, and named from its resemblance to a camel and a panther. These animals are exceedingly docile, and delicate in constitution. In 1827, the Hoy of Tunis sent one each as presents to the kings of France and of England. The one in France was kept at the Jardin des Plantes at Paris, and attended with great care : the one to England was Bent to Windsor, where the climate seemed unfavourable for it.
