How long is the tongue of a Masai giraffe?

DOC Farrow responded on 04/29/2015

A giraffe's feet are the size of a dinner plate- about 12 inches. Giraffes have the same number of vertebrae in their necks as humans. A giraffe's tongue is 18 to 20 inches long and a black color. The black color helps to protect the tongue from getting sunburned as the giraffes eats. Giraffes can moo, hiss, roar, and whistle. Giraffes have the longest tail of any land animal. Their tails can be 8 feet long. The running speed of a giraffe is 35 miles per hour.
