Here is something you might not have known. About 4,500 years ago a giraffe was kept in a zoo by the Egyptians. This is a report about giraffes and all of the wonderful facts and interests! Turn the page to see what a giraffe looks like!
Did you know that a giraffe's neck can get up to eight feet long? That is like two fourth-graders combined! The most obvious thing about a giraffe is its really long neck. Why does the giraffe have its long neck you may ask. Scientists think it is to reach the leaves on tall trees. Another fact about a giraffe is it has spots. Did you know a giraffe's horns can get up to ten inches? That is pretty small for such a big animal. Now that you have seen what a giraffe looks like what does a giraffe make for dinner?
Here's another thing that you might not have known. Giraffes only eat plants which means giraffes are called herbivores. Giraffes' diet is made up of mainly leaves. They also eat buds and shoots. A shoot is a bottom of a plant. They also eat lots of flowers and trees. A fun fact is that giraffes need about nine gallons of water to quench their thirst. Let's go home to see what the other giraffes are doing.
Did you know that males are usually liv alone? Giraffes live in Africa and South Sahara. They like open woodlands and wooded grasslands. Giraffes are most active early in the day and evening. Females and their young form little herds. "Oh no, the lion pack is here. Run baby run."
Here's something interesting about giraffes. Giraffes fight with their horns. A giraffe has a thick hoof so it can kick what is threatening it. A giraffe can go running into its enemy and use its horns to attack. The animals try to kill the giraffe are mostly cheetas, bulls and lions. All right lets take a trip down an interesting avenue!
