  • Description

    These are not Rycroft's recordings, these recording were made by Dr. George Siberbauer ( who has emigrated to Australia to the department of Anthropology, Monash University). A voice announces that this is a giraffe. This recording is a musical bow, the song is very rhythmic which would seem to imitate the walking style of a giraffe. There are some voices, chatting and making sounds but no singing.
