How giraffes sleep ...
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Giraffes!
"Occasionally, and only for very short periods of no more than 5 minutes, giraffe can sleep with their head resting back on their rump. But this is an extremely exposed and vulnerable position, hence the brevity and rarety." -- Giraffe Conservation Foundation
these images of baby giraffes sleeping all curled up are UNBEARABLY cute!
note to self: must include this in a children's book!
(They look like yours truly at the end of a bender.)
Yeah, who knew baby giraffes sleeping are as cute as cats?
awwww... is that your cat, adam?
