A LITTLE ABOUT GIRAFFES
The superstars of African wildlife, giraffes are graceful, towering creatures. They are a symbol of self-love, self-acceptance, and individuality. When you dream of a giraffe, consider that as a good omen. Luck and good fortune is coming your way.
The giraffe is the world’s tallest terrestrial animal. They live in the open woodlands and grasslands of Africa, roaming around in groups and munching on leaves of tall trees, specifically acacia trees. Their huge height and long tongues allow them to reach higher than what other animals can reach.
They may be tall creatures with long, powerful legs, but they are not without predators. While giraffe calves are usually hunted by leopards and hyenas, lions are their number one predator. Lions love chasing them and luring them into slippery grounds where they may lose their balance and be easier to catch. But, the big cats are not always the winner! A single kick from an adult giraffe can kill a lion!
Giraffes often fall prey to many predators. That is why their behavior has evolved throughout the years out of necessity. In the wild, they rarely lie down, since it puts them in a vulnerable position to predation. They can get energized and survive with just an hour of sleep each day while standing. That’s the shortest sleep requirement for any mammal! Drinking water is also a struggle for them because of their height, so they get most of their water from the fresh leaves they eat.
Watching giraffes always makes people smile! There is some bad news, though. Giraffes are in serious trouble. According to recent reports, the animal lost 40% of its population in just 30 years. Poaching and wildlife trafficking are contributing to this decline. There are approximately 68,000 left in the wild. Let’s help protect them by spreading the word about their situation.
With these giraffe coloring pages, we can demonstrate our love for giraffes. We can share how beautiful they are and that the world needs them. Together with your younger siblings, children, or other kids, you can explore different color combinations for pretty giraffes.
