NEWS CREW – Giraffes

by , under News Crew


Nice reporting Jumping Shiverstar! Your giraffe article is featured in this week’s NEWS CREW!

“So I hear that some long necked animals are returning to Jamaa? Yes my friends, giraffes are coming back to Jamaa!!! Why should they come back? Must I really answer that? Giraffes are extremely cool creatures! While we wait for them to arrive, here are some cool facts!

1. Giraffes have long eyelashes! Think about if you were in a hot african desert all day. You’d need some nice long lashes to keep the dust out of your eyes!

2. Giraffes have giant hooves. An adult’s hooves can grow to the size of dinner plates! KEEP YOUR DISTANCE PREDATORS!

3. How long did it take for you to learn to stand, walk and run? A few years, I bet. Amazingly, giraffe babies can learn to stand in thirty minutes and even learn to run after only ten hours! Talk about quick learners!

4. Many people get tired after standing still for half an hour. Giraffes sleep standing up and they do alot more work than us!

5. Giraffes sleep the least of any mammal! They spend between 10 minutes and two hours sleeping total per night! I can’t last very long without 10 hours of sleep and even still I’m tired!

6. Every looked at your fingerprints? They’re all unique just like snowflakes and zebra’s stripes. So are giraffes spots! No two giraffes have the exact same pattern! See you in Jamaa – hopefully soon with giraffes!”

Congratulations to Baroness Rockyfoot! She’s the winner of this week’s NEWS CREW! She’ll receive a plaque for her den AND a CAMERA BADGE for her name tag. Watch this space for the next topic or Jammer Central in Jamaa Township. Excellent reporting Baroness!

Eagles are amazing animals that live around the world. Although you may have seen only a couple species of eagles, there is over 60 species! Did you know eagles are at the top of the food chain?

You can usually recognize an eagle by it’s chiefy additude and big size of wings! Eagles also have very unsual eyes. They are very large in proportion and can see more then 3 basic colors humans can. Eagles can live in many different places like deserts and more!

Some eagles are built with short wings and long tails, enabling them to hunt in the tight confines of the forest. Eagles also tend to be very carnivorous. Did you know eagles like to live on mountains tops and places far away from humans?

The bald eagle is the most commonly found eagle around the americas. Eagles tend to raise their young in nests in large trees near rivers or coasts. Did you know the bald eagles’s diet tends to contain 70-90% of fish? The eagle is a wonderful and amazing addition to the land of Jamaa!

Savvy Jammer

Our Buddy, Arctic Wolf, had this to say about being a SAVVY JAMMER:

‘So Savvy Jammers isn’t just about being a jammer on Animal Jam that knows how to do things right, it’s about responsibility, respect, courage, and lots more! Show everyone that you aren’t just some normal jammer; show them that you are a Savvy Jammer! Let them realize that you are more than just special! Every jammer has the ability to shine; you just need to show it. See you in Jamaa!’

Thank you for all of your submissions and HAPPY ADVENTURING!
