They can eat up to as much as 63 kg (140 lb) of leaves and twigs a day Giraffes are herbivores and primarily eat twigs and leaves. Giraffes feed mainly on the twigs of trees, grazing on the foliage of the African bush. They prefer plants of the Mimosa (acacia) genus and combretum species, but they feed on the leaves of over 100 varieties of plants and trees. Their long necks enable them to reach the upper branches of trees which are out of reach of other herbivores. However, their necks are not long in order to reach up high, they are long in order to reach down low. (There is an advantage for the giraffe due to its long neck: sometimes when there is competition of food, they can reach for the taller trees.) That is; it would be impossible for a giraffe to drink water from streams due to their equally long legs, without crouching or kneeling, which would then leave them vulnerable to attack by crocodiles and other predators. They also eat shrubs and grass as well as berries and fruits when they are in season. Although herbivorous, giraffes are known to visit carcasses and lick dried meat off bones. When stressed, they will also eat tree bark. See the related links below for more information.
