Amazing animal facts about the Giraffe

Giraffe

A giraffe is the tallest of all animals living on land and can reach a height of over 5m (16ft) tall.

 They have blue black tongues which can grow to over 40cm long (1.5ft) and are impervious to thorns found on their favourite diet, the acacia tree.

An adult giraffe's heart weighs around 10 kg (22 lb) and measures about 2 ft long and creates the highest known blood pressure in a mammal - more than double that of a human. Giraffes give birth standing up and the calf can start to walk within an hour of being born.
