12 fascinating giraffe facts

  1. Giraffe are already extinct in at least seven
    countries in Africa.
  2. Just like
    no two
    giraffe have
    the same
  3. Giraffe feet are the size of a dinner place with
    a diameter of 30cm.
  4. Giraffe tongues are bluish-purple and
    between 45 - 50cm long.
  5. Both male and female giraffe have ‘horns’
    already at birth. These ossicones lie flat and
    are not attached to the skull to avoid injury at
    birth. They only fuse with the skull later in life.
  6. The giraffe is the tallest mammal in the world.
    Even newborn giraffe are taller than most
  7. Female giraffe give birth standing up. Their
    young fall about 2m to the ground and can
    stand up within an hour of birth.
  8. About 50% of all giraffe calves do not survive
    their first year.
  9. A giraffe’s neck is too short to reach the
    ground. As a result, it has to awkwardly
    spread its front legs or kneel to reach the
    ground for a drink of water.
  10. Giraffe only need to drink once every few
    days. Most of their water comes from all the
    plants they eat.
  11. To protect the giraffe’s brain from sudden
    changes in blood pressure when it lowers its
    head to drink, it has valves to stop the back-
    flow of blood and elastic-walled vessels that
    dilate and constrict to manage flow. NASA
    has done research on the blood vessels in
    giraffe legs to get inspiration for human space
  12. A giraffe heart weighs approx. 11kg and is
    the biggest of any land mammal. It is used to
    pump 60 litres of blood around its body every
    minute at a blood pressure twice that of an
    average human.
