Giraffes are the tallest living terrestrial animals and are preyed on by lions, and calves are also targeted by leopards, spotted hyenas and wild dogs.

Adult giraffes do not have strong social bonds, though they do gather in loose aggregations if they happen to be moving in the same general direction.

Males establish social hierarchies through "necking", which are combat bouts where the neck is used as a weapon.

A giraffe has only two gaits: walking and galloping. Walking is done by moving the legs on one side of the body at the same time, then doing the same on the other side. When galloping, the hind legs move around the front legs before the latter move forward, and the tail will curl up.
