Yellow Giraffe

Giraffes are sanctuary animals. They are unlocked at reputation level 3.

Like all other sanctuary animals, players can only have two of them.


Giraffes have two different appearances: yellow and beige.

When players tap on the yellow giraffe, its legs start to tremble for a short period.

When players tap on the beige giraffe, it plops down on the ground, spread-eagle fashion and blushes before it gets up.

Unlocking giraffes

Giraffe Puzzles

Unlike other animals, giraffes cannot be bought. Players must unlock them by finding puzzle pieces (which are collected in a log book). 36 pieces are required for each animal.

Once players have obtained the first giraffe, the puzzle for the second giraffe is unlocked. After both adult giraffes have been added to the sanctuary, the puzzle for one of the giraffe calves is unlocked.

Players get the first sanctuary animal for free once the sanctuary is opened. The animal is chosen at random and can be an elephant, hippo or giraffe.

Placing giraffes

Players must pick up a giraffe house to be able to place the animal in the sanctuary. The giraffe house is free and can be obtained from the Shop. ShopShop Icon.

When the second puzzle is completed, players are asked to upgrade the giraffe house, which does not cost anything. The same happens when players complete the calf puzzle. When the house is big enough to welcome a new animal, it is delivered in a crate, "airlifted" into the sanctuary by balloons.

Feeding giraffes

Wheat Bundle

Giraffes are fed with wheat bundles. Once giraffes have eaten they roam the sanctuary for ten hours and finally fall asleep. Players can immediately wake them up to receive 25 xpExperience per animal. Giraffes stay asleep otherwise.

Giraffes which have been woken up but are not fed for a long while cannot fall asleep and wander around looking sleepy and tired.


Each giraffe unlocks specific decorations in the Shop, as listed below:

  • The beige giraffe unlocks Lala Palms and Rock Formations.
  • The yellow giraffe unlocks Acacia Trees and Ice Plants.

With each animal players are given the first pair of decorations for free. Players may purchase more decorations with coins.
