1. Giraffes are much taller than lions and elephants.

(Does this sentence mean that giraffes are much taller than the height of lions plus the height of elephants?)

2. Giraffes are much taller than lions or elephants.

(I think 'or' is much better. What is the difference between Sentence 1 and Sentence 2?)
