The Giraffe from, “The Last Of Us” Season 1 Finale is real despite many movie critics claiming it to be CGI. The giraffe’s name is Nabo and he is originally from Alberta, Canada. When questioned if they used a real giraffe, the show’s location manager said, “A Giraffe can be created in visual effects, but it is not the same as in real life.” Joel and Ellie have just arrived in Salt Lake City and are investigating the area when Ellie notices something delicious. She saw a cheerful, healthy giraffe eating leaves that grew out of a bombed-up structure. Sarah and Joel approach the giraffe, feeding and stroking it, and later see a giraffe herd roaming the city.

Which, along with its placement in the greater perspective of The Last of Us, is a crucial component of its beauty.

Ellie is distant and quiet when we first see her in the season finale, shaken by her terrifying encounter with David. But as she sees Nabo, all of her anguish fades. The scene replaced all of the previous episodes’ fear with a sense of wonder.

The giraffe scenes with simple serenity are also a pleasant relief after the rest of the show’s despair and gloom. Cannibals, fires, and child predators were all featured in Episode 8. A little break with the animals is an excellent opportunity to regroup and share some delight with our characters.
