Baby Giraffe is born and only 2 days old’ such a cute little guy !
Congratulations are in order for the staff of …….. Banham zoological wildlife park Norfolk England UK…… (-:
Giraffes have long necks, which they use to browse the leaves of trees.
The vertebrae are separated by highly flexible joints. The base of the neck has spines which project upward and form a hump over the shoulders. They have anchor muscles that hold the neck upright.
An unexpected danger to giraffes in captivity is that, as they are typically the tallest objects in a zoo, giraffes are at increased risk of being struck by lightning.
In the wild, this hazard is reduced by the presence of trees.
