Giraffes roam over large areas of bush and savannah areas, living often in semi-desert regions where they get most of their water from their food. Giraffes live to be 15-20 years old in the wild.
The Greenville Zoo has two Masai Giraffes, Autumn and her calf, Tatu, born Feb. 2, 2016.
Baby giraffes are about 6 feet tall when they are born.
A giraffe’s tongue is 18 to 20 inches (46 to 50 centimeters) long and blue-black.
Giraffes can moo, hiss, roar, and whistle.
Autumn enjoys chewing on long pieces of grass.
