What are giraffes social behavior? First, giraffe have a complex cooperative social system, exhibited by: 1) stable groups of females; 2) offspring that stay in their natal group for part or all of their adult lives; 3) support by non-mothers in rearing young; and 4) non-reproductive females in the group (Lukas & Clutton-Brock 2012a, b).
Are giraffe intelligent? Physically, giraffes are quiet, extremely tall, have excellent eyesight and are considered very intelligent. The intelligence of giraffes is a factor in how quickly they adapt behaviourally in response to changing external stimuli. Giraffes are ruminants (like cows, sheep, and deer).
Are giraffes emotional? Although females create relationships, they do not have the strong bonds and emotions of other animals that spend many years together, like elephants. They are often considered to be not very smart either because they do not socialize or because they do not have a sophisticated communication system.
Are giraffes friendly to humans? Not only do they enjoy being surrounded by other giraffes, they often enjoy the humans as well. They will eat from your hand and may even enjoy the occasional head pet!
