Giraffes (Giraffa camelopardalis)

Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve is home to a herd of 9 giraffe which can be visited out on The African Experience; a 100-acre naturalistic enclosure also home to many African species such as zebra and ostrich. Giraffe brothers Cillian and Settanta are 17 years old and love exploring their home and the great advantage of many trees to devour. Cillian is a very greedy giraffe so he thoroughly enjoys this!

    Fun Facts about giraffes

    The heart of a giraffe weighs around 25 pounds - big enough to pump blood all the way up to its brain. 

    With legs around 6 feet tall the giraffe is one of the worlds tallest mammals and with those long legs can run as fast as 35 miles an hour across short distances and 10 miles an hour over longer distances.

     

    Diet & habits

    Using their height, a giraffe will eat leaves and buds on the treetops others can't reach.  Its long tongue can grab the tasty morsels off branches and it regurgitates its food to chew it as cud like a cow would eating hundreds of pounds of leaves each week.
