The giraffe is a large African hoofed mammal belonging to the genus Giraffa. It is known for its extremely long neck and legs, its horn-like ossicones, and its spotted coat patterns. Traditionally, giraffes have been thought of as one species, but researchers have recently proposed dividing them into multiple species due to new evidence. Giraffes usually inhabit savannahs and woodlands. Their food source is leaves, fruits, and flowers of woody plants, primarily acacia species, which they browse at heights most other herbivores cannot reach. Giraffes live in herds of related females and their offspring or bachelor herds of unrelated adult males, but are gregarious and may gather in large aggregations. Females bear sole responsibility for rearing the young. Giraffes have been featured in paintings, books, and cartoons. Giraffes are classified as vulnerable to extinction by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. They are found in numerous national parks and game reserves. (Full article...)

The American TV series Cobra Kai has released fifty episodes over the course of five seasons, with an upcoming sixth and final season. The first season of the martial-arts comedy-drama series premiered on the streaming service YouTube Red on May 2, 2018. YouTube Premium then released an additional season in 2019. Following a content shift on YouTube, subsequent seasons moved to Netflix. The third season and the fourth season were released in 2021 followed by a fifth season in 2022. Originally expected to be released by December 2023, the sixth season was delayed due to the 2023 Writers Guild of America strike and the SAG-AFTRA strike. Netflix later announced the final season would consist of 15 episodes and would release in three parts beginning in 2024 and ending in 2025. Cobra Kai is a spin-off and sequel to the first four films in the Karate Kid franchise. The first season takes place 30 years after the 1984 film The Karate Kid. Ralph Macchio (pictured) and William Zabka, among other actors, return from the film series in prominent roles. Cobra Kai has received critical acclaim, multiple award nominations, and large viewing figures. (Full list...)
