Animals

Giraffes are the tallest mammals that are known in the world right now. Even when a giraffe is first born, it will stand taller than most humans. A baby giraffe is able to stand on its own just 30 minutes after it is born and can run at full speed after 10 hours.

Once a giraffe is able to stand on its own, it will spend most of its life that way. Giraffes even sleep standing up.

Interesting Facts About Giraffes

#1. Giraffes are one of the few animals that create groups for their young. Until about 6 months of age, young giraffes are sent off to play with each other while their mothers observe from a distance. This gives giraffes a unique way to develop their social skills.

#2. Giraffes get very little sleep. On the average day, the longest a giraffe will typically sleep is 2 hours. Some giraffes may only sleep for 10 minutes per day. It is easily one of the lowest sleep requirements for mammals that has been observed.

#3. The giraffe is usually a very peaceful animal. Only the males typically fight, and even then, their version of fighting is to bash their necks together. Violent encounters are extremely rare.

#4. The spots that are found on a giraffe are completely unique. No two giraffes are exactly alike.

#5. Giraffes have tongues that are ridiculously long. The average length of a giraffe’s tongue is just over 17 inches. Their tongues are also adapted for foraging trees that would not be food sources for other animals, which allows them to be able to graze in their own way.

#6. The circulatory system of a giraffe is very unique. The veins in the legs of newborn giraffes expand rapidly, which is why they are able to stand so quickly. When researchers noticed this, they realized that the same principles could apply to astronauts who were struggling with weak veins when returning from space.

#7. Giraffes very rarely need to drink water directly. Much of their water need comes from the plants that they eat. If they do need to drink water, they will spread their front legs out wide so their long necks can reach the water. Most adult giraffes only need to drink water like this once per day.

#8. Because of their size, giraffes are surprisingly fast. Their walking speed often exceeds 10mph. When giraffes are running, they have been observed at speeds which exceed 35 miles per hour.
