What Does It Mean When a Giraffe Bellows, Whistles, Bleats or Mews

Mama giraffes, like other moms and their children all around the world, utilize a unique set of noises only with their offspring.

When looking for the youngster, they use loud bellows that may be heard up to a mile away, and whistling or flute-like sounds for other communications like returning home.

And if the kid needs a scolding? That’s another time giraffe hissing is heard.

Young giraffes generally only mew or bleat when they are under a year old.
