Giraffes are the “high boys” among nature’s children. .They are animated watch towers, so full of curiosity they become oblivious to their surroundings. Sometimes they stand their ground permitting you to come quite close. When they re treat it is with dignity and the leader stands broadside, outlined against the sky like a massive sta tue. If satisfied you mean no harm he walks sedately away without once turning around to see if he is followed. They live peaceably among them selves, bearing no ill-will toward their neighbors. Their soul-search ing brown eyes gaze fearlessly into ! yours, and this habit endears them to their keepers. But keep your eyes on their heels. When they kick they do so in all directions at once. They can reach high up into a tree for leaves. Add to their height the 18-inch reach of their grasping tongues, and you understand why the shrubs and trees look as they do. Giraffes use their small,. knob tipped, Hair-covered horns for friendly bouts with each other. A male will lower his head and shove his horns between the forelegs of his rival. Then, with a mighty heave, he rears his head bringing him down on his haunches. This undignified posture usually means defeat. The giraffe’s neck, though ex ceedingly long, has the same num ber of vertebrae as the human neck —seven of them. But the degree of their length is without equal, and 1 they serve their owner well. A myth says giraffes are mute. iThey do have poorly developed larynxes and the best they can do •is to “moo” softly. One authority claims “the giraffe is not mute, merely reticent.” Twins are rare. The baby is fear less, except that a sudden move will send it rocking to mother. It is said a mother will not only be a baby sitter, but will nurse her charges as well. The handsome coat of the giraffe ! blends perfectly with his surround-1 ings, and his wonderful sight, good; sense of smell are safeguards! against enemies. No animal is more awkward when it has to drink. A giraffe can go a long time without water and if it catches a strange scent as it ap proaches a water-hole, it forgoes the drink, for grace and caution must be tossed to the wind. To low er the head to the water the fore logs spread out straight and stiff at right angles to one another, shuddering the while. A giraffe drinks long and very slowly. To recover its normal standing posi tion it is just as awkward. Small wonder, indeed, it is not anxious to visit the water-hole frequently. There are several easily distin guishable types of giraffe. The one in Africa is the big game mammal most of us know best. The Masai wears brown maple-leaf blotches on a beige background. Somalis wear a red coat with network of immac ulate white. Ugandas have three oony horns. These and a half dozen other forms have some individual claim for some physical distinction. All are fashioned along the same lines with the same gentle soulful eyes and insatiable curosity. *iUVERTISEMENT.
