Why do we love these Wild Open Spaces Giraffe Calf 12 oz. enamel mugs? Enamel mugs are just nostalgic. They look awesome and feel great. They're perfect for little hands because they're mega durable. If you're camping (in a park or your backyard) did you know enamelware can go right on the fire? We love these mugs and hope you do too. Start your own collection or share as a gift. White-rimmed, enamel coated stainless steel.

Baby giraffes are called calves. During birth, the calf will fall 5 feet (1.5 m) to the ground, since mother giraffes give birth standing up! Baby giraffes are born six feet (1.8 meters) tall. They can grow an inch a day, and double their height in one year. Giraffe mothers often take turns watching over their calves, but if left alone, the infant patiently sits down and waits for its mother’s return.
