Did you know... Giraffes are born with their ossicones (horns) lying flat against their heads? As the young giraffe matures the horns fuse to the skull and begin to harden and grow. As adults, females retain tufts of hair on the horns, but males lose the skin and hair from the tips and they become quite formidable weapons.
