Giraffes are found in "The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That".


Appearance

As the tallest land animal, the giraffe measures 20 feet tall. It is yellowish white with brown spots.


Information

Giraffes have long necks that allow them to eat the highest leaves from their favorite trees. They are most vulnerable at water holes, where they have to spread their legs to get a drink. A giraffe's 18 inch tongue can reach into the herbivore's nose and clean it. Predators of a giraffe are mainly lions. Leopards, hyenas, and wild dogs usually take 50 to 75 percent of calves. Giraffes can run up to 30 miles per hour, but they can outrun many animals. They also have hooves the size of dinner plates, which they use to kick a lion. When a giraffe gives birth, her calf drops six feet to the ground.
