In the wild, a giraffe can live between twenty and twenty-five years. In captivity, this expectancy expands to about twenty-eight years. There’s not a lot to account for this difference. In the wild, giraffes can easily reach leaves on a tree that others cannot reach. These animals are considered to be vulnerable because of killing in their native lands - Africa - and because of a want for exotic leather.
The giraffe has a long neck, which is the most recognized trait of the giraffe. They also have brown spots on their yellow-white skin, and have little horns on their heads. These are actually their ears. However, these animals also have a quirk. They sleep standing up as an adult, and typically sleep sitting down with their heads on their butts as a calf.
