Giraffesseem to need very little sleep. In the wild, they rarely sleep more than five minutes at a time. They usually stay standing, just curving their neck around so that the weight is taken on the hindquarters. At night, when actually at rest, they don't clock up more than thirty minutes.

They may now be sitting in a reclined position with their long necks curled right round and their heads resting on their rears. Over a twenty-four hour period, they would be asleep for only four hours. This makes them the mammal with the shortest sleep requirement of all: Quite a Record.

The answer to the question about how many minutes a giraffe sleep on average each day is letter D or 1 to 12 minutes a day. That being said, giraffes have one of the shortest sleep requirements of all mammals in the world. Although it is worthy to note that a giraffe usually takes between 10 minutes to almost 2 hours in a day. The reason why the correct answer for this question is letter D is due to the fact that it is the closest among all the given choices.

Of course, we can choose letter B or two to five hours, but giraffes don’t really sleep more than 2 hours in a day. So choosing letter D or 1 to 12 minutes a day is the safest since it covers the correct time a giraffe sleep on a day – 10 minutes or more.
