A giraffe's stride can reach fifteen feet when it has fully grown. This is the longest stride found in nature; not even a baby giraffe can match it. That said, this stride is the reason that giraffes are able to outrun prey, even at a young age. While a baby or a young calf cannot reach that fifteen foot stride, their stride is long enough to keep them from being a snack.

Due to this long stride, an adult giraffe can run full speed at anywhere between thirty and thirty-five miles an hour. While this is only half as fast as the cheetah can run, the giraffe’s height makes it a rare choice as prey when it is fully grown.
