You'd think that giraffes is a thoroughly studies specie. You'd be wrong. Giraffes are not nearly as well studies as we might be led to think. Also, they are four different species, according to a new CNN article.

I enjoyed that article also.  Amazing what we will learn in Paradise!!

This thread is a perfect excuse to dredge up the old 'Giraffe Optical Illusion'...not that I'd need an excuse to dredge it up.Grin Big.gif

It makes me laugh everytime. (I'm easily entertained.YES Grinning.gif)

Spoiler

Optical Illusion

If you stare at this long enough, you should start to see a giraffe:

Let's see:

 

  • Giraffe's are mammals
  • Giraffe's are tall
  • Giraffe's have long necks
  • Giraffe's are herbivores
And here the title says "Everything" we know is wrong :eek:

Well, the title was a joke, and implied that we might need to be careful with what we think we know and keep asking questions. Like, in the article they assumed that the giraffe is a safe specimen, but the truth seems to be that their numbers are declining rapidly, and they are not one but four different species. People say say they are even-toed ungulate mammals...

Are you sure you trust that source?

CNN is very biased and has questionable ethics and practices and beliefs...

Did you verify any of this?...

Thanks for the info but that is someone else's research and I'm afraid to download it....

:whistling:

If the intention was that you should use it as a source for your answers at the meeting or as your research for the meetings instead of your own, then you would be wrong. Also, for many, CNN is a trusted source for news, but if it's your only source, you're in trouble.

It is according to this particular article. For many, CNN is a good and trusted news source despite its flaws, but it should not be your only source of news. Compare with the Guardian, a decent source but not without flaws. Then there's Live Science, The Independent, The New York Times, The Verge, and Bioscience Technology.
