Giraffes roam over large areas of bush and savannah areas, often living in semi-desert regions where they get most of their water from their food. Giraffes live to be 15 to 20 years old in the wild.
The Greenville Zoo has three Masai giraffes: Autumn (female),
and their female calf, Kiden, who was born January 31, 2018.
Baby giraffes are about six-feet-tall when they're born.
A giraffe’s tongue is 18 to 20 inches long and blue-black in color.
Giraffes can moo, hiss, roar, and whistle.
Giraffes enjoy chewing on long pieces of grass.
