Giraffe Top Speed

Giraffes are the tallest animal on the planet.Their tongue is one and a half feet long and at up to one and a half tons the male giraffe is twice as heavy as a cow.The neck has seven vertebrae like a human’s but each one is as long as a human head.Long lashes protect the giraffe eyes and their lower teeth work like a comb stripping the leaves from the spiny branches.
