A giraffe's tongue is long! The 21-inch (53-centimeter) tongue helps them pluck tasty morsels from branches. Giraffes eat most of the time and like cows regurgitate food and chew it as cud. A giraffe eats hundreds of pounds of leaves each week and must travel miles to find enough food. http://ift.tt/1ZmF9mo
Giraffe tongues can be as long as half a meter and they are slightly bluish purple with bristly hairs for eating around acacia thorns...or grabbing carrots! Click through to "Dark Roasted Blend: Suddenly... Giraffe! (Funny Pics)" for some fascinating giraffe information and lots more photos.
