Giraffe Traits in the Wild
When giraffes fight, it is referred to as “necking”. It consists of a combination of head-butts, jousting, kicking, and biting. This display is the most aggressive physical experience that they are likely to get involved in amongst other giraffes. One reason male giraffes fight is to get the right to mate with other females. This is a rather common phenomenon in the animal kingdom.
When it comes to defending themselves from predators, they have another powerful tool in their arsenal. Their deadly kick! They can generate immense power through their 6 foot tall legs, combined with the 30 cm (1 foot) diameter of their hooves. The result is often a severely damaging, or even deadly to its pursuers.
Giraffes are actually very social creatures and not territorial at all. A group of giraffes is called a “tower”. This is rather fitting considering they are the tallest animals on Earth. A tower of giraffes typically has 10 to 20 members without a dominant leader in their herd. Tower members are usually free to come and go as they wish.
Sadly, giraffes are now considered to be an endangered species for a number of reasons. These include poaching for their skins, tails and for bushmeat consumption. Human-wildlife conflict, resulting from encroachment into their natural grassland habitat is another major factor. In addition, changes to their natural habitat because of climate change and mining activities has a detrimental impact.
Concurrently, there has been a 40% decline in their populations across sub-Saharan Africa over the past thirty years. May the Giraffe Silver Plated Bangle remind you of the fragility of this amazing species. Tap into your tenacity, act for the greater good and protect those around you. Wear it with the Giraffe Silver Plated Earrings to encourage you to stand tall and fight for what you believe in.
