This chapter describes the giraffid remains in the Middle Awash late Miocene deposits. The family Giraffidae is represented by two modern genera (Okapia and Giraffa) in Africa. Giraffids first appear in Africa south of the Sahara sometime toward the end of the middle Miocene. During the late Miocene, however, giraffines, which were also abundant in western Eurasia, dominated the giraffid community of eastern Africa.
