Facts about Giraffes:

The giraffe habitat is Africa, where it lives on the Savannah. The Giraffe can become 4-5 feet tall and weigh 700-1500 kg.

Their feed is leaves and fresh shoots.

Giraffes are often in a flock, but at a distance from each other. Because they are so tall, they can still see each other.

Often a giraffe will leave the flock and join another group, while others will join the first group.

When a giraffe is going to drink, in order to reach the water it bends the forelegs or spreads them.

The giraffe's senses:

Sight is the most important. The giraffe can see enemies and other giraffes from a long distance.

Hearing is also good. The ears move constantly, so the giraffe can follow what is happening around.

The giraffe has a good sense of smell. It captures odors that come with the wind. It can close and open the nostrils.

The sleeping giraffe:

Usually giraffes rest standing, but sometimes they lay down.

When resting the giraffe has half-open eyes, still on guard.

The giraffe sleeps only approx. 20 minutes a day. When it sleeps, it rests the head on one of the hind legs, and it only sleeps a few minutes at a time.

More giraffe facts:

The giraffe ambles, which means it lifts forelegs and hind legs on the same side when walking. Head and neck swings when ambling.

It was once believed that the giraffe had no vocals, but that is not true. The giraffe baby, when in distress, makes a kind of bleating, and the grown up giraffe can make a sound like "brrrrr".

It is a advantage for tall animals like the giraffe and the okapi to amble, because that means they can take long strides without their long legs hitting each other.

All giraffe are born with brow horns, called ossicones. The size and number of the horns can vary.

The horns grow throughout life. Young animals have hairy horns, and the hair often is worn off with age.

Some giraffe also have two smaller brow horns.

The giraffe picks the leaves from the tree with his tongue, or tears branches of with the lips.
A horny layer protects the lips and tongue against thorns on the leaves and branches.
The length of the tongue is approx. 45 cm.

There are 8 sub-species of giraffe, divided up by where they live in Africa, and differences in the skin patterns.

Here you see drawings of some of the different skin patterns:
