Giraffe Facts

One of our most popular animals is our giraffe, Sheldon. It is not hard to see why. Giraffes are not only beautiful, but they are friendly and eager to interact with everyone. Their unique look makes them stand out. They combine the stripes of a leopard with the look of a camel. This is reflected in their scientific name -- Giraffa camelopardalis.

Giraffes come from Africa, but scientists believe they may have once lived in certain parts of Asia as well. Giraffes are the tallest land animal, with some growing as much as 20 feet tall. Male giraffes like our Sheldon weigh on average about 2,628 pounds, whereas female giraffes average 1,825 pounds. Their diet consists of foliage such as twigs and leaves, as well as other types of vegetation. Giraffes are not often vocal, but recent research suggest they occasionally hum softly.
