Giraffe Fact! Did you know…
Female giraffes give birth standing up and their young may drop several feet to the ground as they are being born. They are protected by the sac though and this keeps them from being harmed during that process. A newborn is about 6 feet tall!
Rhino Fact! Did you know…
Rhinos have poor eyesight, but very well-developed senses of olfaction (smell) and hearing.
A rhino has difficulty detecting someone standing only a hundred feet away if the individual remains still. However, if the person makes the faintest sound or the rhino is able to smell the person, it will easily detect him, even at much greater distances. The olfactory portion is the largest area of the rhino’s brain.
