Just so, what kind of weather do giraffes like?
The ecosystem in which giraffes live is called the savanna; the African savanna is characterized by rolling grasslands that are warm year-round. Temperatures in the dry season dip to a balmy 70 degrees, while the rainy season can see temperatures in the mid-80s.
What do they do with giraffes in the winter?
But other animals, such as giraffes, aren't built to cope with winter conditions. In these cases, the zoo decides what to do based on the animal's normal habitat and its adaptability. If the animal can't adapt to colder weather, it is moved to an indoor area where its temperature can be monitored more closely.
