GIRAFFE FUN FACTS ~ DID YOU KNOW

  • Each giraffe’s markings are unique. Just like snowflakes and human fingerprints, no two giraffes have the same pattern.
  • The hoof of a giraffe is about 12 inches – the size of a dinner plate.
  • A giraffe’s neck is so pliable that it can chew its own tail.
  • The 2 or 3 rounded horns on a giraffe’s head are called ‘ossicones’.
  • The giraffe towers over other animals and is the tallest living animal in the world. Males can grow up to 18-20 feet (5.5+ metres) tall.
  • Giraffes can run faster than most horses (35 mph).
  • Baby giraffe is already about 150 pounds and 6 feet tall when he is born.  :o
  • A giraffe’s tail is almost 8 ft (2.4m) long, the longest tail of any mammal.
  • Giraffes have licorice coloured tongues – black jelly beans anyone?!  :)

GIRAFFE ~ INFORMATION FOR KIDS ~ FREE PRINTABLE

Giraffe ~ FREE article for kids  (Paper Gifts for Estefany) giving glory to God as Creator; also available in French; free printable

Giraffe free printable article for kids giving glory to God as creator

Giraffes ~ fun facts for kids  (answersingenesis) The giraffe is the tallest of all land animals. Its heart can be over two feet long and is engineered with a network of bypasses and anti-pooling valves that allow the giraffe to raise and lower its 500-pound (227 kg) neck and head without fainting. NASA scientists have studied the giraffe’s uniquely created anatomy to help them develop gravity suits.

Giraffe ~ design features for kids  (answersingenesis) The giraffe is amazingly designed. The unique design of its lungs, heart, capillaries, and birth process all play vital roles in the giraffe’s survival. The heart has to pump enough blood into the giraffe’s brain while the capillaries have to prevent the high blood pressure from affecting the animal when it bends over to get a drink.

Giraffe ~ incredible neck design  (creation.com) The giraffe is an animal that certainly stands ‘head and shoulders’ above every other animal. An adult male can reach a height of 3 metres (10 feet) at the shoulder, with a neck that can extend for a further 2.5 metres (8 feet).

Giraffe ~ animals that stand out in a crowd  (creation.com) The giraffe’s heart is probably the most powerful among animals, because about double normal pressure is required to pump blood up the giraffe’s long neck to the brain. With such high blood pressure, only special design features prevent it from ‘blowing its mind’ when it bends down to take a drink… birth of a newborn giraffe… The new calf drops into life from 1.5 metres (five feet) up… the head is disproportionately large compared to the rest of the body at birth, and it becomes a challenge to pass it down the birth canal. The baby giraffe has the added challenge of having a very fragile long neck attaching it to the rest of its 70 kilogram (150 pound) newborn body. If the head came out first, the neck would surely break when the rest of the body fell on top of it… solved by the rear hips being much smaller than the front shoulders, and the neck is just long enough to allow the head to pass through the birth canal resting on the rear hips. The hind feet exit first to break the fall on the rest of the animal. The head is supported and cushioned by the rear hips, and the neck is pliable, allowing a sharp bend around the front shoulders. This is a perfect exit, that would be impossible in any other combination or with any other new length of neck. Within minutes the new calf is gracefully standing…”

Giraffes + Drinking = headache?  (creation.com) The giraffe heart is probably the most powerful in the animal kingdom, because about double normal pressure is required to pump blood up that long neck to the brain. But the brain is a very delicate structure which cannot stand high blood pressure. What happens when the giraffe bends down to take a drink? Does he ‘blow his mind’? Fortunately, three design features have been included in the giraffe to control this and related problems…

GIRAFFE ~ SHORT VIDEO ~ JUST TO BRIGHTEN YOUR DAY

Take a two-minute holiday and watch the miracle of a brand new baby giraffe born (short video) in front of delighted onlookers at the Memphis Zoo. Amazing. While you are watching it, bear in mind that a newborn baby giraffe is already about 6 feet tall.  :o

“…birth of a newborn giraffe… The new calf drops into life from 1.5 metres (five feet) up… As in all mammals, the head is disproportionately large compared to the rest of the body at birth, and it becomes a challenge to pass it down the birth canal. The baby giraffe has the added challenge of having a very fragile long neck attaching it to the rest of its 70 kilogram (150 pound) newborn body. If the head came out first, the neck would surely break when the rest of the body fell on top of it… solved by the rear hips being much smaller than the front shoulders, and the neck is just long enough to allow the head to pass through the birth canal resting on the rear hips. The hind feet exit first to break the fall on the rest of the animal. The head is supported and cushioned by the rear hips, and the neck is pliable, allowing a sharp bend around the front shoulders. This is a perfect exit, that would be impossible in any other combination or with any other new length of neck. Within minutes the new calf is gracefully standing between the mother’s legs.” creation.com
