Friday Fact: Giraffes

The longest mammal on land?

Yes, you guessed it – the giraffe. The giraffe reaches an average of 5meters. However, the tallest giraffe on record was measured at 5.8meters! That is a whole meter taller than a double deck bus! Wow!

But, despite its very long neck, the giraffe only has 7 cervical vertebrae – just like the human. Now that is rather interesting!
