The giraffe is one of the most beautiful creations of Mother Nature. She is graceful and clumsy at the same time. Humans are fascinated by the way she manages to coordinate her huge legs and long neck to move with such grace and elegance.
The GIRAFE is able to adapt to his environment and can live with rather limited resources. She sleeps only a few hours a day and can digest the almost inedible leaves acacia. Many local tribes consider the giraffe to be an intuitive animal because of its long neck and perfect vision. Thanks to these, she is able to detect the danger well before the animals around her, who have no idea who is coming. Giraffes are more vulnerable when bending down to drink water, so they tend to be always on the alert and scrutinizing their environment. This detail has not gone unnoticed by local tribes, who see the giraffe as a living reminder of the importance of being attentive to what surrounds us.
The Bushmen of Africa have created many rituals that highlight their vision of this strange but beautiful animal. The dance of the giraffe aims to remove the spirits of evil infesting our heads. These animals are part of a large number of traditions of African culture, who talk about the intelligence of the giraffe and its incredibly long neck.
During the heyday of Roman Empire, many giraffes were sent by boat to the coliseums of Europe to be shown to the public. The Romans were fascinated by these unusual animals and thought it was abouthybrids of camels and leopards. But this practice came to an end shortly after the fall of the Roman Empire, and in the Middle Ages the Europeans had only heard rumors about the existence of these strange creatures. The only place in the world where giraffes could be seen at that time, besides Africa, was China. At 15e century, giraffes were sent by boat to be shown in public. Later, they will inspire the legend of Qilin.
