Did you know that giraffes are the world's tallest mammals? Thanks to their towering legs and extremely long necks, they are able to take the title of 'earth's tallest mammals' with pride. A Giraffe's legs alone are generally longer than the total height of the average human, at around 6 feet tall! Their long legs allow them to reach speeds of up to 35 miles per hour! Can you imagine watching a Giraffe run at the speed of a car? We think that would be quite the sight.

AnimalLogic is back with a new fascinating video about an elusive and rare cat. Their last video about elusive cats was about the Sand Cat, known to be the king of the desert. Today we'll be learning about the Scottish Wildcat, less than 50 in the wild today, this cat is actually the rarest cat in the world. Yup, you heard that correctly. 

Being a cat, the Scottish wildcat is obviously adorable (like all cats of any size), and just like all wildcats, it has a reputation as a ferocious hunter. AnimalLogic mentions at one point in the video that this cat is not one you want to ever encounter... but after seeing just how cute these cats are I think it's safe to say we all wouldn't mind encountering them.
