About this book

Learn all about the amazing world of giraffes, and follow their lives from calf to adult. Do all giraffes have the same pattern on their fur? How long is a giraffe's tongue? What is necking and why do giraffes do it? Find out the answers to these questions and many more in this beautifully designed book, part of the Animal Lives series from QED. Full of stunning photographs of giraffes in their natural habitat, this is a wonderful and awe-inspiring addition to any child's bookshelf. Each title in this appealing series takes an up-close look at a different creature, exploring habitat, conservation and animal adaptation, as well as looking at the life cycle of the particular animal and the way the young survive – often against tremendous odds. Giraffes also discusses the importance of protecting endangered species and their habitats.
