instinct is natural calling or voice. instinct is similar with intuition.
Giraffes are related to horses. They have very long necks to reach the leaves they eat. Their bodies are covered with large brown spots. Giraffes have long black tounges to he…lp them gather leaves from the branches. They are usually found in the Sahara deserts. On their heads are two (or rarely more) little stumps used to attack predators. When giraffes get a drink of water, they have to spread their legs out long and bend their necks all they way down (at this time when they get drinks, they are open for attack for any predators because it takes a little while for giraffes to get back up properly.).
Giraffes eat a variety of shrubs, leaves, flowers, twigs and even thorns. The acacia tree is the most important food for the giraffe.
Giraffes, like many wild animals, travel in groups. They forage for food, spending a great part of every day chomping and tearing off leaves from the highest branches of trees…. Also like other wild animals, they must find water sources. Usually, the paths to food and water are well established as places their mothers, and their mothers, and so on have visited through hundreds of years. Giraffes mate and mothers care for their babies. They must be most vigilant against predators which try to isolate the babies first. Giraffes cannot lay down because their necks are so heavy they would be unable to stand without human assistance. So they sleep standing up. At any given time, some in the group may be sleeping while others are awake. Like most wild animals living in high temperatures, giraffes battle insects. So you might likely see giraffes swatting their tails or stamping a foot because an insect is annoying them. They have long eyelashes which helps keep insects from their eyes.
The majority of the Giraffe population is in Africa, though I believe their are a few small groups in Asia.
A magnificent tail, very dandy legs with rounded knees, a back which looks like a camel hump, a gorgeous long neck which looks like a giant ruler, and excellent ears.
a behavior that is passed from parents to offspring Instinct is the intuitive way of acting or thinking of a person or an animal. It is also defined as a typical fix…ed pattern of behavior of a person or an animal in response to stimuli.
They feed on vegetation high above the ground and tend to run from danger.
Running and eating!
A giraffe is a mammal in africa with a very long neck
it has a main some have skinney mains while others might have thick ones
Why would you even want one? Plus I don't think you can get one (only if you have a zoo obviously) :p
From Africa. You cannot buy them on any market. The Petite Lap Giraffes depicted in the DirectTV commercials are fictional computer graphic generations.
