In 1900 there were 100,000 cheetahs in the world. By 2006, due to loss of habitat and prey, the number of cheetahs has declined to just 12,000. That's why I founded KidsLoveAnimals.com, which is dedicated to educating kids and their families about endangered species. If you love animals, please bookmark this site. In future posts we will take you along on our personal journey to Save the Animals through our KIDSLOVEANIMALS.com DVD series.

Big Heads and Long Tongues!

CLICK HERE to watch giraffes being hand fed at Wildlife Safari in Winston, Oregon. The park generously gave us behind the scenes access to shoot this video for the bonus features on our African Safari DVD.

A giraffe's tongue can be as long as 18 inches (46 cm), making it possible for it to reach around the long sharp needles of the Acacia tree to grab hard to get leaves.

Giraffes spend most of their time browsing for food and can eat up to 75 pounds (34 kg) of leaves in a day.
