The giraffe’s extra large heart pumps blood all the way up to its head. Giraffes live in Africa. The plains of central and eastern Africa are dotted with acacia trees. Acacia leaves are the giraffe’s favorite food. Other hooved animals roam these great plains. But only the giraffe and the elephant are tall enough to eat from the treetops.
