Why Does The Male Giraffe Lick Urine?

The male giraffe walks over to each female giraffe in the herd and places his chin on her rear. He waits for a few seconds until the female giraffe urinates. The male giraffe will catch the urine with the tip of his tongue, he will then raise his head high into the sky swirling his tongue around his mouth. Why does the male giraffe lick the urine of the female giraffe and swirl it around his mouth? The male giraffe is checking the female giraffe’s hormone level to determine if the female is ready to mate. This is an example of the giraffe mating behavior. Conservation of wildlife is important to me, we need to protect these animals especially during mating and calve baring season. Nature is very important to a healthy planet.
