Giraffe adults might be the tallest animals around, but baby giraffes are no slouches – they can be up to 7 feet tall and weigh almost 250 pounds. This baby giraffe figure makes a perfect companion for our adult giraffe.
- History: While adult giraffes have very few natural predators, newborns are still dependent on their mothers for protection. Female giraffes will form something called a “nursery herd”, surrounding the young as they move from place to place. Giraffes have even been known to babysit the calves of others in the herd!
- Scientific Name: Giraffa camelopardalis
- Characteristics: Young giraffes look much like adults, only smaller: same long neck, same distinctive fur color pattern, and the same skin-covered knobs on the top of their heads called “ossicones”. This hand-painted figurine is excellent for educational purposes, play, or display in a collection.
- Size: 2.9 inches long and 3.5 inches tall, our giraffe baby figurine is a touch bigger than a deck of cards stood upright.
- The Giraffe Baby is part of the Wild Safari® Wildlife collection.
- All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free.
