Giraffes. Slow creatures looking at you with a naive look from a height of five meters. Well, their little horns definitely give out aliens from another planet

What do we know about giraffes? Well, first of all, that the giraffes belonging to the order of ruminant artiodactyls (giraffe family) are the tallest animals in the world. The growth of males can reach a height of up to five and a half, even six meters. This is approximately the height of a two-story house. Moreover, about a third of the growth of a giraffe is its neck. Even newborn giraffes that are born, falling from a height of about two meters, are taller than most people.

In addition to zoos, where most people are used to seeing them, giraffes live in Africa, south of the Sahara desert, on grassy and shrubby plains, where individual trees and tall shrubs grow, the leaves of which are giraffes and feed. Thanks to its unique neck, tall walking giants, like sentinels, rise above the savannah, having the opportunity to taste the tops of the acacias. Giraffes "lick" the leaves of the trees with their long, rough tongue. And the males eat the tops themselves, and the females, which are a little lower, "lick" the leaves about a meter lower.
