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.
