Giraffes - The World's Tallest Animal

From National Geographic

I have a book called The Big Book of Animal Devotions.  I love it!  My sweet husband reads me 3 of them before I go to sleep.  We have learned a lot about the animal world.  Last night one of them was on giraffes.  I knew the giraffe was the tallest mammal, but didn't know how tall they really were.  

Another thing is that the babies are delivered standing up which is a drop of 5 feet and they will be running with mom in short order.  But that baby weighs 100 pounds at birth.  Imagine carrying around a 100 pound baby in your tummy!

Their legs are 6 feet long and they run at a top speed of 35 miles per hour.  WOW!
