My favorite animal is a giraffe. Many people don’t really recognize giraffe’s because they are not really a popular animal. My favorite part of a giraffe is it’s neck, because it makes them really tall and they can reach there food easily. A giraffe is originated from Africa. An extinct relative of a giraffe is a Okapi. The environment a giraffe is a Savannah and wooded grasslands of eastern and southern Africa were There are a lot of acacias tree’s and shrubs for them to eat. Over short distances giraffes can run up to 35 mph. Giraffes only drink water every couple of days they don’t need water that much. Female giraffes sometimes return to were they were born to give birth. Baby giraffes can walk and run after an hour of their birth. Giraffes tongues can be up to 20 ft long. Giraffes sleep up right. Giraffes have to eat about 75 lb of food a day that is a lot of food. That is why giraffes are my favorite animals.
