It’s likely you have not seen giraffes like this because you won’t often catch giraffes sleeping. (Aside from me! 🙂 ) giraffes have the shortest sleep requirements of any mammal, needing around 30 minutes a day. Until about the 1950’s researchers thought that they never slept at all.
Because of it’s slowness in lying down and getting up the giraffe as a prey animal has evolved to protect itself by reducing it’s need for catching zzzz’s. Beautiful, exotic and amazing huh?
Do we have any other ‘giraffes’ amongst us, or are you the full-bodied 8 hours type?
