Reticulated giraffes form loosely organized groups of two to 20 animals. Apparently giraffes have “friends,” and will associate with certain individuals in the group more often than others.
What can be 18 feet tall, weigh up to 3,000 pounds and has eyelashes to die for? A giraffe! These amazing creatures are browsers, eating the leaves of acacia, mimosa and wild apricot trees. In zoos, they are fed acacia, alfalfa, veggies and giraffe chow. They are not endangered, but their range in and around Tanzania is shrinking. As with many large mammals, habitat destruction is their biggest threat.
Your gift will be used to support these gentle giants and further the San Francisco Zoological Society's mission to connect people to wildlife, inspire caring for nature and advance conservation action. An adoption of a giraffe makes a great gift for friends, coworkers, family or for yourself!
