The Amazing World of Giraffes

Tall Tales: How Big Can Giraffes Get?

Have you ever wondered how tall a giraffe can be? Giraffes are the tallest mammals on Earth! They can grow up to 5.5 meters (18 feet) tall. That’s taller than three adults stacked on top of each other! Their long necks help them to eat leaves from the tallest trees. And guess what? Even though their neck is so long, they have the same number of neck bones as humans – just seven!

Blue Tongue Mystery: Why Do Giraffes Have Blue Tongues?

Giraffes have a secret weapon – their tongues! Their tongues are not only long, up to 45 centimeters (18 inches), but they also have a surprising color: blue! This special color helps protect their tongues from getting sunburned while they munch on leaves under the hot African sun.

Heart Power: The Strong Heart of a Giraffe

With such a tall body, giraffes need a powerful heart to pump blood all the way up to their brains. Their heart is huge, weighing about 11 kilograms (25 pounds), and it’s very strong. This mighty heart keeps the blood flowing, making sure their long legs and necks get all the energy they need.

Speedy Sprinters: How Fast Can a Giraffe Run?

Even though they’re so big, giraffes are quite fast. They can run up to 60 kilometers per hour (37 miles per hour) over short distances. This speed helps them escape from predators in the wild.

Sleepy Giants: Giraffes’ Sleeping Habits

Giraffes don’t need much sleep. They only sleep for about 30 minutes a day, often taking short naps standing up! This helps them stay alert and watch out for any dangers.
