16 Gentle Giraffe Pictures

Pin It

Giraffes, the tallest of all land-living animal species, are one of those animals that everyone seems to love. With their long necks, legs, and tongue, they are fun to watch moving around towering over everyone. I recently went to a wildlife park where you could feed the giraffes lettuce. It was the most popular attraction there and watching people squirm as 3 giraffes reach for the yummy veggies with their long slobbery tongues was very funny. What amazed me the most was how calm and gentle they were, which of course might differ slightly from those in the wild. Needless to say, they seemed very stress-free, which may explain why they only need around 2 hours of sleep a day. They drink large quantities of water, which gives them the ability to withstand dry environments for long periods of time, and live between 20-25 years in the wild and 28 in captivity.

Here are 16 gentle giraffe pictures for you to enjoy.

    There are so many great shots here how can I pic just one? But the one that speaks loudest to me is where the giraffe is just strolling down the road without a soul around. :)

    Stunning all of them! I think my favourites are the silhouettes and the “mother and child” one. =)

    So many beautiful shots and from some very great angles! My absolute favoriteis #9 – the close up of the face – clarity of the mouth and slight blurring of what is behind; and it fills the space. Just breathtaking!
