By looking at how the eyes work and how they move together in the brain. You’ll learn everything you need to know to draw an awesome giraffe!
Giraffe Brain Anatomy
This lesson is about understanding how the giraffe brain looks like. The brain consists of three parts; the cerebellum, the limbic system and the hypothalamus.
The cerebellum is found in the center of the cerebrum. This makes it the body’s most active part. The cerebrum is the brain’s center of decision-making and planning. It allows a giraffe to decide which direction to take when it decides to move its head or feet.
The limbic system is found in the trunk of the brain, between the cerebellum, and the amygdala. It allows a giraffe to feel emotions. Emotions allow giraffes to understand the thoughts and feelings of others.
The hypothalamus controls our hormones, such as testosterone and estrogen. These hormones influence our growth and development. It is the part of the brain thought to regulate our overall health.
Giraffes are considered very aggressive and protective in nature. The reason is because they are born with a high level of intelligence. Also, their body is designed to withstand a lot of stress!
