Does the Giraffe have a Voice?

The giraffe is the tallest animal in the world and often reaches a height of 17 feet or more.

But there is another remarkable thing about this unusual animal—it has practically no voice.  The giraffe has a poorly developed voice box which it seldom uses.

Tallest Animal

Giraffe in zoos have been heard to utter a soft “moo,” and they can grunt or whimper and make whistlelike sounds.

A baby giraffe may bleat like a lamb when hungry.

The giraffe’s great height comes mostly from its long legs and neck, for its body is no larger than that of a horse.

Although  its neck is very long, the giraffe has the same number of neck bones that you have in your own neck, but the giraffe’s neck bones are very long.

Because of its height, the giraffe can browse on twigs and leaves on the upper branches of tall trees, far out of reach of other animals.

While the giraffe is gentle, it can put up a good fight when attacked.  It uses its head like a sledgehammer to strike heavy blows and kicks out with its powerful hind legs. – Dick Rogers
