As we know giraffe neck is not is not to long so that giraffe can't reach to the water for drinking purpose.Due to large height giraffe needs to spread his legs for drinking the water or have need to kneel down for reaching the ground water during the drinking it very easy for predators to target the giraffe that's why giraffe have no need to drink more water just have need to drink small amount of water . Giraffe fulfill his water needs from the leaves of trees.Due to this ability giraffe can survive without drinking on daily basis.
