Learn fun giraffe facts and follow the handouts to draw a giraffe.
- Giraffes are the tallest mammals on Earth. Their legs alone are taller than most humans—about six feet.
- They can run as fast as 35 miles an hour over short distances or cruise at 10 mph over longer distances.
- A giraffe’s neck is too short to reach the ground. As a result, it has to awkwardly spread its front legs or kneel to reach the ground for a drink of water.
- Giraffes only need to drink once every few days. Most of their water comes from all the plants they eat.
- Giraffes spend most of their lives standing up; they even sleep and give birth standing up.
