Did you know that each giraffe has it's own thumb print? Humans have their own unique thumb print and giraffes have their own unique coat pattern. No spot pattern on a giraffe is the same on another giraffe. Pretty cool huh?
The lion is the only animal that poses a significant threat to a giraffe. Giraffes defend themselves with some serious karate moves--according to Wikipedia, "a single well-placed kick from an adult giraffe can shatter a lion's skull or break its spine." If I could be any animal, it would most definitely be a giraffe. Plus, I like to be in control at all times, so it seems to me that giraffes would have a pretty great vantage point.
