7 Interesting and Fun Facts about Giraffes ...

I recently learned some interesting facts about giraffes that were actually pretty cool. I have a giraffe stuffed animal named Sheldon Claude and all my friends love him like he is their own. Heโ€™s the cutest giraffe out there, in my completely biased opinion. One of my friends, who loves to spend time with Sheldon, started talking about facts about giraffes and I couldnโ€™t help but gain so much appreciation for this incredible animal.

(Your reaction) Thank you!

A fun fact about giraffes takes place immediately after birth. Mothers not only give birth standing up but their babies can stand within 10 minutes of coming out of the womb. I find that incredible because it takes humans about a year to master this skill. Whatโ€™s more, after only 10 hours of being born, baby giraffes can already run alongside their families. Talk about early learners!
