So, what are the giraffes up to today? (The webcam stream takes a few seconds to load.)
Want to get closer? Check out our Giraffe Encounters page to find out how you could get to feed them face to face!
Giraffes are one of the world’s most recognisable animals, with their long necks and legs. Did you know they have the same number of their bones in their necks as humans? Like us they have seven, but theirs are obviously much bigger!
How to tell giraffes apart
Male giraffes are taller than females, and have larger horns. You can also tell which are the younger ones. They hold their necks more erect, have short, soft, slightly woolly hair, and have tassels instead of horns.
What do they eat?
Giraffes feed on leaves, shoots, bark and flowers. Their long necks mean they can reach trees as tall as six metres (over 19 feet). And they have really long tongues – up to 45cm, or about 1.5 feet – which they use to tug leaves and shoots from spiky trees.
