Strange that this wasn’t one of the 9 facts but they also have the largest heart of any land animal. Pumping blood up that neck to the brain isnt easy.

My friends stayed in a hotel where giraffes were known to poke their heads through open windows. They seemed to.have no fear of humans but on safari the ones on the savannahs always ran away when they heard the trucks. Weird eh?!

Their head is at the back end. In effect they are back to front and so they walk backwards all the time. That way they can see if anything is following them.
