The animal of the day is the Giraffe. (Did you know: Their tongues are a foot and half long, and their hearts weigh 25 pounds! Their heart has to be very powerful to send blood up that long neck to their brain!
Their horns are called ossicones, and both the males and females have them. You can use the horns t0 tell the gender since males will typically be bald on top of the horns [due to ‘necking‘ when they battle], while the females will have tufts of hair on the top of their ossicones.
Giraffes will drink huge quantities of water when they can, and this allows them to survive in dry, arid areas.
One last thing! The giraffe has one of the shortest sleep requirements of any mammal, which is between ten minutes and two hours in a 24-hour period, averaging 1.9 hours per day!
