Giraffes are fascinating animals. Owning plush stuffed toy animals such as our hand-sewn giraffe may be the only way your child can have a giraffe.
Our stuffed toy animals, jungle collection includes a pretty 18” safari toy and it has just arrived back I stock after a long absence.
Did you know the Giraffe is the tallest among all land living animals? The giraffe can be 16 to 18 feet tall and weigh up to 3,000 pounds. Females are generally slightly shorter and weigh less than the males do.
Both sexes have horns, although the horns of a female are smaller. Giraffes have spots covering their entire bodies, except their underbellies, with each giraffe having a unique pattern of spots. They have long, prehensile tongues that are impervious to the thorns of the acacia trees that they feed from and are distinctly blue-black to protect from sunburn. They have long necks, which they use to browse the leaves of trees.
Giraffe perform a behavior called necking. Necking duels occur when males fight. Giraffe use their heads to strike a blow and they also use their necks to show affection toward another giraffe. Giraffes are normally quiet animals. They do not have only one distinct sound that they make. They will, however, cough, whistle, bellow, moo, grunt, snort and hiss.
