Schleich 14753 Asian Elephant, Female
Model Number: Schleich14753
Schleich Wild Life Giraffe calf
Item no: 14751
All Schleich figures are lovingly hand-painted with detailed modelling and allow children to learn as they play. Baby giraffes are reared together with other young animals in a kind of kindergarten. A female giraffe from the herd acts as the "nursery school teacher" and looks after the calves while the other mothers search for food. If predators approach, she immediately raises the alarm. Then the female giraffes stand protectively in front of their babies and kick at the attackers. At around four months, they start to pluck and eat the small leaves from trees, but they still suckle from their mothers until they are ninth months.
