Interesting Giraffe Facts
A giraffe’s coat is called a pelage. Human fingerprints and zebra stripes are completely unique from one animal to the next. Comparatively, the same applies to the giraffe. Indeed, every giraffe has a different spot pattern. These patterns also vary between different giraffe species.
The towering height of giraffes, (up to 4.3 meters (14 feet) for females and 5.4 meters (18 feet) for males), gives them a massive vantage point. They can reach trees and branches in order to access vegetation that is inaccessible to most other animals. Their long sticky tongues, which can reach up to 20 inches long, is an added asset. It enables them to access a variety of leaves and to strip them from the trees.
They can spend between 16 to 20 hours a day searching for and eating food. However, while they may be big consumers, they are also big givers. This is because seeds from some acacia trees can only germinate after passing through a giraffe’s digestive tract. In this sense, they symbolise life, regeneration and abundance.
The giraffe teaches us to look at everything from different angles. Indeed, everyone has a different perspective, which is what makes us all unique. Embrace this as it will give you the ability to recognise different opportunities that match your circumstances. When you see them, pursue them wholeheartedly and with confidence. Pair this with the Giraffe Gold Plated Bangle for an extra dose of assurance and tenacity.
