Did you know that if a Giraffes Legs splay out from underneath itself it cannot get up and will in most cases die? This is true with both the Reticulated Giraffe and the Masi Giraffe as well as all other species of giraffe. It has been documented that on very rare occasions a Splayed Giraffe can be immediately tranquilized and hosted with a crane back up on its feet. This must be done immediately upon splaying and the crane must support the animal until it is fully alert. This technique is rarely available and rarely if ever works and is extremely stressful for the animal. Animal Stress alone is a killer with exotics and most Zoo Animals.
