A Closer Look at BGT's Endangered Species Tour

Behind the Thrills has a great look at the Endangered Species Tour at Busch Gardens Africa in Tampa, Florida. They learned several interesting facts like:

  • Giraffes have the same number of vertebrate in their necks as humans, just larger.
  • Their tongue is black and purple to protect it from the sun since they spend most of their day eating
  • They can see the color green from almost a mile away
  • The name "Reticulated" means net, which makes sense since it looks like they have nets thrown over them
