Gathered up close to each other and the tree, this group of Reticulated Giraffes seems particularly offended by the rain. They can go for over a month without drinking, so one can suppose this is an inconvenience for them rather than a blessing.
They weren't angry enough to make any noise about it, However. When they do vocalize, they only emit moans or low notes.
Giraffes most often sleep in standing positions. It's a practical matter. For Giraffes, sleeping in a standing position makes it a whole lot easier to get up in the morning.
