Giraffes. Everyone knows what a giraffe looks like. But have you ever seen one up close? There is only one word to describe the face of a giraffe - goofy. But you cannot deny they are tall. Some can be 19 feet tall allowing them to stand above the whistling thorn acacia and see what is around them. But being tall has disadvantages too. A giraffe baby has a 5 to 6 foot drop into the world. Guess they are tougher than they look.
