This giraffe might not feel awkward about being celebrated, but it’s most definitely confused about this strange human tradition that interrupts the main event: cake eating.
In their natural habitat, giraffes face a different set of challenges and they live for about 20 to 25 years.
Additionally, human-related factors such as habitat destruction and poaching have a substantial impact on their lifespan and overall population.
Captive giraffes often experience a longer lifespan compared to their wild counterparts.
This extended longevity is primarily due to comprehensive healthcare, consistent nutrition, and the absence of natural predators.
This giraffe is turning 20 years old (an impressive age for the species) and is gifted a specially prepared cake.
It pauses, seemingly puzzled by the human tradition of singing. Once the song concludes, the giraffe resumes the main event of any birthday: cake eating. .
This giraffe being treated to a birthday treat is nothing short of a treat to us too! Beyond that though, its confusion highlights the absurdity of some of our made-up birthday rituals us humans have come up with.
