The Masai Giraffes are located in the African Savanna Section of the Toronto Zoo.

 

The Masai Giraffe [Giraffa camelopardalis tippelskirchi] is also known as the “Kilimangaro Giraffe”.  It is the largest subspecies of giraffe and the tallest land mammal on earth!  Males can reach up to 18 feet in height, and females up to 14.  Their life span is between 15-20 years.  Masai Giraffe’s are located in the African Savanna south of the Sahara Desert .

Giraffe’s can often been see “chewing their cuds”.  Just like cows, they are ruminants, which means they have stomachs with several chambers.

  Did you know... 

That giraffes “moo”, “hiss”, “roar” and “whistle”?

Notice the tufts of long thick hairs on the giraffe’s tail?  This is used to flick off flies.  Giraffes have the longest tails of any other land animal, and can be up to 8 feet long!

A giraffe’s heart is very large in order to pump blood to their brains along their very long necks.  Having such a long neck makes it hard for a giraffe to reach food that is on the ground.  In the image below, we see how a giraffe needs to spread its forelegs apart in order to pick up food.  It’s feet are about the size of a dinner plate – 12 inches!

Zookeepers have made a walking trough to make feeding for the giraffes' easier.  Hay is placed in a way such that the giraffe does not need to bend its neck far down.

Did you know... 

that the coloured splotches on a giraffe will get darker as the animal grows older?  Typically, the  splotches appear as an oak-leaf pattern and range in colour from yellow/tan, dark brown or black. Also, that a giraffe can close its nostrils any time it wants?

Both sexes of giraffe have horns.  Females have thinner horns with tufts, while male horns are thicker and are balding on top.  Both have a smaller horn at the front of their heads almost between their eyes.

We Are All God's
Creatures

 

 

 

 

"If all the beasts 
were gone,
 men would die from 
a great loneliness 
of spirit, 
for whatever happens 
to the beasts 
also happens to the man.  
All things are connected.  Whatever befalls 
the Earth 
befalls the sons 
of the Earth."

~ Chief Seattle 
of the Suquamish Tribe,
 letter to 
President 
Franklin Pierce ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Life is as dear 
to a mute creature 
as it is to man.  
Just as one wants happiness 
and fears pain, 
just as one wants 
to live 
and not die, 
so do other creatures."

~ His Holiness 
The Dalai Lama ~

 

 

 

"If you have men 
who will exclude 
any of God's creatures 
from the shelter 
of compassion and pity, 
you will have men 
who will deal likewise 
with their fellow men."

~ St. Francis of Assisi ~

 

 

 

 

"The worst sin 
towards our fellow creatures 
is not to hate them,
 but to be indifferent to them.  that's the essence 
of inhumanity."

~ George Bernard 
Shaw ~

 

 

"A bird does not sing 
because it has an answer. 
 It sings because 
it has a song."

~ Chinese Proverb ~
