NEWS CREW – Giraffes

Category: 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!”
