Giraffes at the Claypits…

Hello. Here are some Giraffes and some facts about them:

  • Eats up to 75 pounds of food a day (typically Acacia leaves)
  • Favorite food – Acacia Leaves
  • Tongue is 18 inches long
  • Have a four chambered stomach and will regurgitate their food for additional chewing – similarly to a cow.
  • Typically get most of their water from the Acacia leaf, but will drink up to 10 gallons of water per day.
  • Knobs are called Ossicones
  • Although rarely heard, Giraffes can moo, hiss, roar and whistle to communicate with one another

I’ll post more tomorrow.
