    Giraffes are the tallest land mammals on earth and even a newborn giraffe is taller than most humans. Their long bluish tongue is 45 t0 50 cms long enabling them to reach into thorny trees for food without damaging their eyes. The heart of a giraffe weighs around 11kgs and pumps 60 litres of blood around the body every minute with a blood pressure twice that of the average person. A giraffe may have a very long neck not it only has 7 bones, the same as humans and all other mammals.
