The heart of a giraffe weighs 25 pounds (11.3 kilograms) and is about 2 feet
long (0.6 meters).
The giraffe has an extremely high blood pressure (280/180 mm Hg), which is
twice that found in humans. The heart can beat up to 170 beats per minute
when a giraffe is running, but a resting/normal heart rate is around 40-90
beats per minute.
It was previously thought that a giraffe had a really big heart, but recent
research has revealed that there isn’t room in the body cavity for this.
Instead, the giraffe has a relatively small heart in relation to its body
size, and its power comes from a very strong beat as a result of the
incredibly thick walls of the left ventricle.
“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
