What I learned recently about giraffes

Short post, but I’ve been meaning to share.

Husband and I took advantage of the Bank of America weekend at the Orlando Science Center last month. If you don’t know about this, and you have a BofA credit/debit card, you can get into various museums around Orlando/USA for free the first weekend of every month. So we went to OSC to watch some documentaries.

The first one was a 3D documentary about Kenya. We got to learn a little bit more about giraffes that I hadn’t considered before:

Giraffes have the same amount of vertebrae in their necks that we do. Really.

Giraffes have mammary glands in the same position as humans and porpoises/whales/manatees, as opposed to the location of dogs or cows. There was a close-up shot of a baby giraffe suckling and it was right up against the momma’s armpit.
