Giraffens lyde

The Lab vil gerne være med til at aflive myten om at giraffer er stumme! De kommunikerer via gede-ligende brøl, når de er små og siden hen som voksne ved hjælp af infralyd (som ikke er hørbart for det menneskelige øre). Spol hen til 1:40 for at høre lyden fra et giraf-føl:

Se evt. artikel på Ingeniøren og en lidt mere teknisk videnskabelig artikel.

Tak til labbyisten KlipKlap for tippet!

Ola nåede sit mål! Og The Lab hjalp lidt til!

Subject: Jørgen was wrong. I made it to a million giraffes!

Hey!

You’re getting this email because you gave it to me when you submitted your giraffe for my One Million Giraffes project. And now I’m letting you know that I made it!

It took me 440 days but I can finally tell my friend Jørgen that he was wrong and I am the happiest man alive. It’s been an adventure like none other and I really want to thank everyone who helped me out. It’s mind-blowing to me that people from 102 countries help me out in making internet history! Thank you!!

The website will live on and you can still submit your giraffe if you want to. And maybe you can even find your giraffe in the brand new One Million Giraffes book! Read all about it here:

Anyway. Thank you for your time. And your giraffe. If I ever meet you I will give you the hug of your life!

Lots of love from a forever grateful Ola
