Who am I and what's my Story? Hi I'm a Giraffe... I would like to tell you a bit more about me. I am the tallest animal on earth and one of the more efficient water users, because I get most of the moisture I need from the plants I eat. Because of my long neck, drinking from a waterhole is rather challenging since I need to bend down over 10 feet in order to drink and force the water up my very long neck, defying the principle of gravity.
