Giraffes are Earth’s tallest living mammals and specialize in browsing leaves and flowers from the tops of trees. Newborns may weigh over 100 pounds and stand 6 feet tall at birth.
The giraffes may generally be seen except in cases of rainy or cold weather. For their safety, during rain or on days following a heavy rain, our giraffes will not be in their habitats. Zoo Atlanta offers giraffe feeding opportunities from spring through fall.
