HAPPY WORLD GIRAFFE DAY

Chobe National Park

Happy World Giraffe Day on June 21!! Did you know that giraffes are on the IUCN’s Red List, meaning they are endangered? I cannot imagine a world without giraffes, can you?!🦒 If you want to help, go to Giraffe Conservation and donate. Enjoy the photos of giraffes from our many safaris, photos by Randy Minton and Alexandra Minton Photography!

Giraffe Facts

Giraffes are the tallest mammals on the planet! Their legs are taller than most human beings!

Like fingerprints, each giraffe’s spot pattern is absolutely unique.

Giraffes can run up to 35 mph!

Giraffe calves can walk within a few hours after birth, and about a week later they are tasting leaves.

Giraffes don’t need to drink much water, once every few days. They get their water from the vegetation they consume.

Gorgeous young giraffe.
