GIRAFFE FACTSPhysical CharacteristicsGiraffes are the world's
tallest mammals. A giraffe's legs alone are taller than many humans at
about 6 feet long. Even the giraffe's tongue is long! The 53cm tongue
helps them pluck delicious foliage from branches. Despite having a very
long neck, the giraffe has the same number of vertebrae in its neck as
all other mammals, they're just elongated. Average lifespan in the wild:
25 years. Size: 14 to 19 ft Weight: 1,750 to 2,800 lbs.

Measures 8cmPlush fake furStuffed toySuitable for ages 3 years and upA very compact raccoon that will
follow you everywhere. Its big black eyes and fluffy tail enhance its
very friendly personality. And at 8cm it can easily fit into any pocket
or pencil case.
Physical CharacteristicsTwo of the most
distinctive features of the raccoon are its extremely sensitive front
paws and facial mask. Its dense underfur, which insulates against cold
weather, accounts for almost 90% of its greyish coat. It has a body
length of 41 to 72 cm and a weight of 3.6 to 9.0 kg. The most
characteristic physical feature of the raccoon is the area of black fur
around the eyes which contrasts sharply with the surrounding white face
coloring. This is reminiscent of a bandit's mask and has thus enhanced
the animal's reputation for mischief.
HabitatRaccoons' original habitats are
deciduous and mixed forests, but due to their adaptability they have
extended their range to mountainous areas, coastal marshes, and even
urban areas, where some homeowners consider them pests.
BehaviourRaccoons are adaptable, and use
their dexterous front paws and long fingers to find and feast on a wide
variety of fare. Raccoons in the northern parts of their range gorge
themselves in spring and summer to store up body fat. They then spend
much of the winter asleep in a den.
BreedingFemale raccoons have one to seven
cubs in early summer. The young raccoons often spend the first two
months or so of their lives high in a tree hole. Later, mother and
children move to the ground when the cubs begin to explore on their own.
DietRaccoons are omnivorous and usually
nocturnal, and their diet consists of about 40% invertebrates, 33% plant
foods and 27% vertebrates.
Strange and Interesting FactsThe
word raccoon is derived from the Algonquin word ahrah-koon-em - other
transcriptions exist - which was the pronunciation used by Chief
Powhatan and his daughter
