Read the following passage, then answer the questions below:
    You and I learn to walk when we were a few months old, but baby giraffes can walk after only twenty minutes. Baby giraffes live in a dangerous world. Lions and other animals like to eat them, so the babies must learn quickly. They learn to run fast. Even at night, giraffes do not lie down. They stand by a tree and sleep. Big giraffes have legs and they can run at fifty kilometers per hour.
    A giraffe's tongue can be fifty centimeters long! Giraffes use their tongues for cleaning themselves. They can even clean their ears with their tongues! A giraffe's favourite food is green leaves from acacia trees. These trees have sharp thorns, but the giraffe's tongue can go between the thorns.
