• 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.
