Once perceived as humble creatures that focused solely on feeding their majestic bodies, one book from 1991 described the giraffe as “socially aloof, forming no lasting bonds with its fellows and associating in the most casual way.” But new research from the University of Bristol, published Tuesday in the journal Mammal Review, suggests giraffes have been misunderstood and are in fact a highly complex and social species. A better grasp of giraffe behavior may help efforts to ensure their survival. Giraffe numbers have declined by 40% since 1985, according to the study, and are listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.⁠
