Why do giraffes have tiny feet? Lakyn age 5

Hi - great question, but I think to a giraffe its feet aren't tiny but just right!  Actually a giraffe's foot can grow to 12 inches or 30 cm in diameter which is about the size of a dinner plate, so that's pretty big next to your foot.  They look small because a giraffe is such a large animal, and actually is standing on just two toes (the third and fourth toes) which is why the foot looks to be not much bigger than the leg.
