Just by coincidence I stumbled across my son's 2nd grade report on giraffes buried in my computer files from 1999:
The first people that discovered giraffs thought that giraffs were half camel and half leopard.
Giraffs tongues are black and 18 inches long.
People have seven bones in their neck and so do giraffs.
They travel in herds.
Giraffs can run 35 miles per hour.
Male giraffs weigh about one and a half tons.
And the female giraffs only weigh about half a ton.
Giraffs have never been seen to take a bath.
