One last thing

Science Says This Is the Sound Giraffes Make
And they only make it at night

It’s long been assumed that unlike other animals, giraffes are largely silent beasts. They don’t oink, moo or roar. But new research suggests perhaps giraffes do have a distinct sound: They hum.
The frequency may be very low on the audible spectrum as far as our ability to hear them, but the very idea of giraffes getting together and humming to each other at night makes me a bit happier.
