    My favorite fact about giraffes is the fact that there are a bunch of species of them and nobody knew until they tested their DNA for fun.

      @Hercules Balls No but i appreciate that there are biologists violently arguing on the amount of giraffes there are and cannot classify them. Shrodinger's Giraffe

    • Hercules Balls
      Hercules Balls 7 months ago +36

      The true fact is that nobody agrees how many species of giraffe there are. The International Union for Conservation of Nature insists that there is only one species and many sub-species. A 2007 genetic study suggests six species. A 2011 project cladistically identified eight species. A 2016 paper identified four groups which have not exchanged genetic information and therefore are distinct species. Just last year another analysis declared that there were from two to six species, depending on the method you used (as if we hadn't figured that out by now). This year a sequencing of the entire giraffe genome suggested four species and seven subspecies. Didn't know it was such a hot topic, did you?

    Interesting fact: because giraffes are even toed ungulates, they're technically kosher. That would make one heck of a Passover centerpiece.

    • Batya Livni
      Batya Livni 7 days ago

      I worked in a museum specifically dedicated to biblical zoology, and can tell you; yes, giraffes are absolutely kosher. There's a myth that they aren't eaten because we don't know where to slaughter them, but that's also incorrect; anywhere on the neck will do. The main reason is that it's not generally practiced, which means they're endangered, and according to firsthand testimony, they aren't that good anyway.

    Okay, so with the males fighting, it looks all ‘drunken-bar like’, but the force is intense. The sound when they clash is spectacular. I have seen a few males fight, it really is humbling. Our giraffes are fairly tame (they are used to cars stopping and staring as I live on a shared private nature reserve, but they are not feeding tame), but when the males fight, it is terrifying.
    If you ever want to experience your own smallness, try ‘stalking’ a giraffe. I once was 5 meters away from one, looking at each other… I never felt so small. (For clarification, it was stalking in the observation sense, I don’t hunt and never will)

      @Felis the unexpected juxtaposition of what should be a giraffe’s outsides next to its insides where the insides are instead a puppeteer which is also not rational… so… it’s surrealist.
      Also, it’s not for nothing that most of what Zefrank writes sounds like it is out of a drug-addled fever dream.

    The reason the giraffe's neck is so long is that otherwise its head would be floating, detached, about ten feet above the rest of its body and that would be silly.

    My dad once had a giraffe at a zoo whisper telepathically to him that it was very lonely and wanted a hug, so he broke into the zoo that night to give it a hug.
    Coincidentally, this WAS around the same time that those crackpot psychiatrists told him he had schizophrenia but the voices insist that he doesn't, so he's fine.

    Nice presentation! Comedy along with facts. You didn't mention that the recurrent laryngeal nerve of a giraffe (which connects its brain to its larynx) goes from the brain all the way down its neck to the heart where it goes around the aorta and all the way back up its neck to its larynx. Which makes sense in evolution because that's the path it takes in everything all the way back to ancient fish. But if they were intelligently designed it makes no sense at all.

  • intrestedinallthings

    Okay but like can you imagine how weird these things would look to us if we didn't learn about them as kids and see them a lot, but rather saw them rendered by like a paleontologist?
    Like if we didn't know they were real, would you believe this thing was real?

    The name camilopardalis is greek, it comes from the greek word for camel and the word "pardalis", which means colourful or patterned. So, basically camilopardalis (greek word for giraffe) means "the colourful, patterned camel". To be fair, their face does look like a camel. Leopard, similarly, literally means "the colourful patterned lion". Kinda accurate me thinks 😂 fun fact, even today greeks use the word "pardali" for colourful clothes, animals and, even, colourful characters. If you are called pardalos by a greek it could be a playful tease or a backhanded compliment or an offense depending on how it's used.
