Informatie over Giraffe

Perhaps one of the most interesting looking animals in Africa: the Giraffe! Tall, with its incredibly long neck accounting for much of its height. Because of their very long necks, Giraffes are able to feed on the foliage of trees that is not accessible to other herbivores. Their long tongue is used to pull pods and leaves into the mouth, which are then stripped from the stems with the teeth. Giraffes are fairly social animals and get together in herds from time to time. However, there is no group bonding. Youngsters stay with a few adult females, and the males are nomadic and move between groups of females.

Interessante feiten over Giraffe

The giraffe is the tallest animal in the world, attaining a height of 5.5m.

Whilst they may eat a lot, giraffes don’t drink much water, as they get most of their water from the leafs.

Newborns are welcomed to the world with a 1.5m drop to the ground, as females give birth standing up.
