Beautifully Long Necked Giraffes And Scientific Facts

Did you know that giraffes are the world's tallest mammals? Thanks to their towering legs and extremely long necks, they are able to take the title of 'earth's tallest mammals' with pride. A Giraffe's legs alone are generally longer than the total height of the average human, at around 6 feet tall! Their long legs allow them to reach speeds of up to 35 miles per hour! Can you imagine watching a Giraffe run at the speed of a car? We think that would be quite the sight.

Giraffes are truly amazing creatures with many unique characteristics. They are able to use their height to graze on leaves and buds on treetops that few other animals are able to reach. Generally, Giraffes roam in open grasslands in groups of 6-12 or so. Another fun fact about Giraffes- they are absolutely awwdorable! Enjoy allll of the wholesome Giraffe goodness that is to come, you deserve it!

Apparently, awkward first dates are not just a human thing. Who knew? 

An absolutely adorable male giraffe was brought into the zoo and slowly gets introduced to its new environment as well as wink wink his new potential girlfriend. He's hesitant with everything in the zoo at first, but boy oh boy, when his eyes fall on that beautiful lady, there is no hesitation to be found. He goes right up to her, confident and brave, and... then things get a tiiiny bit awkward. 

Still better than some of the first dates we've had though. The two of them make the most adorable giraffe couple, and truly, it looks like it might be love at first sight. We wish this tall couple all the luck and may they be happy together with their new lives.

Silly But Adorable Animals Who Suck At Hide And Seek

Some animals may be masters at playing hide and seek, but not these ones. Nope. These cuties, fierce as they may be, truly suck at the art of stealth. They're trying their best though, and we love them for it. 

Even the cats, animals who, in nature, are some of the stealthiest, most gasp-inducing creatures of all, have really failed in these pics. Then again, they may think they're fierce, but we know that our tiny widdle kitty babies are the clumsiest, funniest, most adorable animals of all, so of course they suck at hiding

All of these animals are the best at making a smile find its way onto your face, so enjoy these silly but adorable animals and have an amazing weekend!

Pictures Worth More Than 1000 Words (24 images)

Some pictures are simply too incredible to be described in anything less than 1000 words. Every week, we bring you some of these pictures. There's so much story within them, whether it's a story of unique animals, 'caught in the act' moments, unexpected relationships, or scheming cats. 

Each of these pictures has a story behind it that we wish we would know. But since most of the times a picture is just a picture, and we don't know what happened to bring such a moment into existence, all we have left to do is imagine. And imagine we do. 

I suspect the reason that this hedgehog is attacking a toy dinosaur is because it's feeling the prehistoric instincts it has from the time during which the hedgehog was the big predator, and the dinosaur was the prickly cutie. But hey, your theory is just as correct as mine.

During the past few months, we've seen a variety of animals wandering about an aquarium and learning about the creatures of the sea! Now, it's time for the land version -- a Zoo!

And two little kittens were able to come face to face with their much larger cat family. It wasn't just tiny kittens that went on this incredible field trip! Two foster pups were invited, too! 

What is the purpose of bringing foster pets to the zoo, you might ask? It's all to raise awareness for animal adoption! The animal shelter that brought in the animals to the San Antonio Zoo is Animal Defense League of Texas

Abandoned Newborn Giraffe And A Guard Dog Become Best Friends

Friendships have no boundaries, not even among different species. 

An abandoned newborn giraffe, named Jazz, was in a dire situation when he was first rescued a week ago by wildlife workers in South Africa.

But thankfully, Jazz was pulled out of a coma and is on the road to recovery -- all thanks to his new best friend friend Hunter, a guard dog at the wildlife rehab center. Under the attentive licks of Hunter, Jazz has been able to to gain back strength. 

According to a Facebook post by The Rhino Orphanage, Hunter is equally taken with Jazz, as Jazz is with him. Hunter, who also assists in anti-poaching efforts has reportedly, "fallen head over heels" for Jazz.  

"Just when we thought it couldn't get any cuter, sweeter and more heart-warming, this happened," the center wrote about a video (shared below) of the pair nuzzling each other, adding that the bond between the animals is "astonishing."

Hunter, is a Belgian Malinois, and "stays in the room all day with Jazz."Hunter doesn't even allow his brother Duke to come close to Jazz, according to the center. Hunter was so upset when Jazz was in a coma that he "didn't want to eat."

We're happy Jazz and Hunter have each other.
