Giraffe Facts:

  • Every time a giraffe lifts up its neck it picks up 550 pounds.
  • A newborn giraffe measures about 6 feet, and is born with horns.
  • Each giraffe has a unique coat pattern.
  • A giraffe’s heart is 24lbs. (10kg) in weight and 2ft. (.6m) in length.
  • A giraffe seldom lies down, it can sleep as well as give birth standing up!
  • Despite being super tall the giraffe has the same number of vertebra in their necks as humans!
  • They don't have to drink very often. They get most of their water from the leaves they eat.
  • The giraffe's hooves are the size of a dinner plate! (30cm). Hmmm this reminds me of another creature who's eyes are the size of dinner paltes! The giant squid!

How Old Are You?

A giraffe’s age can be calculated from its spots–the darker the spots, the older the giraffe.
