Giraffes are thought to be one of the largest pollinators in the world, transferring seeds and other plant matter from one tree to another on their noses, lips and tongues. Acacia leaves form the bulk of the giraffe’s diet, but other trees are also browsed. A male, or bull, can eat up to 80kg of leaves each day, along with bark and fruit.

Giraffes are nearly 2 metres in height when first born and males can reach a height of more than 5 metres when fully grown. Excellent eyesight and a good sense of hearing are features of all giraffe subspecies. A giraffe can see a human standing 2km away! Although giraffes don’t have a distinct sound easily identifiable to them, they do communicate with one another through snorts, grunts and low grumbling.
