A few interesting nuggets about giraffes…

Giraffes have three hearts.

They are the worlds tallest mammals, yet only have 7 vertebrae.

They sleep for less than 30 minutes a day!

The females in the herd operate a creche to look after the baby giraffes (calves).

A giraffe’s neck is too short to reach the ground!

Sadly, giraffe numbers are rapidly in decline, having fallen by 30% in the past three decades. They are currently listed as vulnerable with less than 100, 000 still in the wild. This is due to a variety of factors, including poaching and habitat loss. Many people don’t realise that giraffe populations are in trouble. They rarely get much media attention despite being such a loved an iconic species.
