La strana danza delle giraffe del Botswana: normalmente ritenute animali goffi, questi animali sorpresi nei pressi del fiume Chobe mostrano, invece, una particolare grazia (Olycom)

Because their main vegetation of choice, Acacia, is thorny, giraffe tongues are equipped with thickened papillae and thick saliva to protect their mouths.
