Giraffe




STATUS:
Vulnerable.
DESCRIPTION:

Giraffes are one of the world's tallest mammals. They are well known for their long
necks, long legs, and spotted patterns. Giraffes have small "horns" or knobs on top
of their heads that grow to be about five inches long. These knobs are used to
protect the head in fights.

SIZE:

Male giraffes are larger than females. Males weigh between 2,400 and 3,000 pounds
and stand up to 19 feet tall! Female giraffes weigh between 1,600 and 2,600 pounds
and grow to be 16 feet tall.

POPULATION:

Giraffe populations are relatively stable.

LIFESPAN:

Healthy giraffes live about 25 years in the wild.

RANGE:

Giraffes can be found in central, eastern and southern Africa.

HABITAT:
Giraffes live in the savannas of Africa, where they roam freely among the tall trees,
arid land, dense forests and open plains.

FOOD:

Their long necks help giraffes eat leaves from tall trees, typically acacia trees. If they
need to, giraffes can go for several days without water. Instead of drinking, giraffes
stay hydrated by the moisture from leaves.

BEHAVIOR:

Giraffes are non-territorial, social animals. They travel in large herds that are not
organized in any way. Herds may consist of any combination of sexes or ages.

OFFSPRING:

Female giraffes typically give birth to one calf after a fifteen-month gestation period.
During the first week of its life, the mother carefully guards her calf. Young giraffes
are very vulnerable and cannot defend themselves. While mothers feed, the young
are kept in small nursery groups.

THREATS:

Giraffes are hunted for their meat, coat and tails. The tail is prized for good luck
bracelets, fly whisks and string for sewing beads. The coat is used for shield
coverings. Habitat destruction and fragmentation are also threats to giraffe
populations.

PROTECTION:

No current protective laws.
