Giraffes Giraffes eat all the time so just like cows they regurgitate their food and chew it as cud. They eat hundreds of pounds of leaves each week and sometimes have to travel miles to find food. Giraffes are the world’s tallest mammals
standing 14 to 19 feet and weighing 1750
to 2800 pounds. Giraffe’s long legs allow
them to run up to 35 miles an hour and
10 miles an hour over long distances
their run is a gallop. Their height is an advantage to reaching
the leaves on the top of the tree, and to
keep a lookout for predators. But, their
height can be a disadvantage too; it’s
very hard to bend over to get a drink. Giraffe “horns” are knobs covered with skin and hair to protect head from injury, they’re called ossicones. Giraffes are a ruminant, which means they have
more than one stomach to help them digest
their food, they have four. Although they
get most of their water from leaves
they drink about 10 gallons
a day. When sleeping, the giraffe generally lies and rests its head on its rump, its front legs under itself, on the ground, tucking then curls its neck back they normally sleep for about 5 minutes at a time. be calculated by its spots, the The age of a giraffe can darker the spots the older. The average
life span of a giraffe is 25 years Giraffes aren’t normally heard but they can moo, hiss, roar and whistle to communicate. Also giraffes have the longest tail of any land mammal, up to 8 feet with a tuff of fur at the end, which is 10 times thicker than a humans hair. The giraffes spots are like human finger
prints and no two giraffe spots are the same. Giraffe's are strong enough to kill a lion, which is
their only real predator. And even their tongue is long, up to 21 inches. They stay in groups of about six. Females give birth standing up, and the
young fall 5 feet to the ground at birth. The
babies can stand half n hour after birth and
can run 10 hours after birth. They can grow
an inch a day. BIRTH FACTS EATING
HABITS SLEEP STOMACH A male giraffe can weigh as much
as a pickup truck. On a normal day giraffes eat about
65 pounds but can maintain themselves
with about 15 pounds. Their heart is 2 feet long and weighs about 25 pounds, and it beats 170 times a minute. The heart's
muscular walls are several inches thick HEART Their diet is
herbivore. works cited
