When predators are close, giraffes do not group together, as the other animals do
Giraffes’ group behavior doesn’t follow common sense - science news in brief

When predators pose a risk, animals gather in larger groups to protect themselves. However, a study showed that this is not true for giraffes. The size of giraffe groups is not influenced by the presence of predators. It is the first time that scientists discover this behavior in animals, opposite to what is normally expected, and it is not clear why they behave like this. This shows how little we know about giraffes, a group of animals listed as “vulnerable” on the International Union for Conservation in Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species.
