- A giraffe will eat up to 140 lbs. of food each day, using its 18 to 21 inch-long tongue to pull down and eat acacia leaves.
- Giraffes have 2 hair-covered knobs called ossicones at the top of their skulls. With age, males may grow a third.
- Ever watchful for predators, giraffes get little sleep—only 5 minutes at a time, for only a half hour to 4 hours each day.
- A pregnant giraffe gives birth standing up, and the newborn drops 6 feet to the ground to take its first startled breath.
