Giraffe Kisses!

When a giraffe calf is born, it will drop 5-6 feet to the ground. Because the mother's give birth STANDING UP! Baby giraffes enter the world with a big fall to the ground. However, it doesn't get hurt and will stand up within about an hour. (One giraffe in a zoo, stood within just five minutes.)

Giraffes need about 75 pounds of a specific type of leaf that comes from the acacia tree to give them enough energy for ONE day. Their tongues enable them to get just a few leaves in each bite, so the majority of the day is spent getting the leaves off the trees....OR...... licking this cute squirrel!!
