“Forget what you thought you knew–there are actually 4 species of giraffes”

http://www.businessinsider.com/there-4-giraffe-species-2016-9

Every time I try to cut/paste I get frozen out, but this brief little news item is hilarious– if hypocritical.  Would you believe it even gives us a dummy-slap for not having noticed that the four species of giraffe have different physical characteristics, like some have darker spots than others.

Yeah, it was pretty dense of us to assume giraffes are all alike, when there are some pretty obvious differences between their groups.

In other news: there are actually 4 species of “human beings”.
