Giraffes are astonishing creatures and the tallest living animals on earth. No wonder crystal designer Martin Zendron was inspired by them. Discover some interesting facts about these magnificent mammals.



• A group of giraffes is called a tower.

• Giraffes can run at speeds of up to 35 miles
(56 kilometers) per hour, outrunning most horses.

• Giraffes are the tallest animals in the world. Males can grow up to 18 feet (5.5 meters) tall.

• A giraffe’s spots are like human fingerprints: no two individual giraffes have exactly the same pattern.

• Male giraffes and female giraffes eat from different parts of the same tree. This is to prevent competition between the males and females.
