No one has ever seen a giraffe swim. But a computer simulation run by two researchers suggests that they probably can: Creating a digital giraffe involved numerous calculations on weight, mass, size, shape, lung capacity and centre of gravity. Calculations were made to discover rotation dynamics, flotation dynamics and the external surface area of both a giraffe and – for control purposes – a horse.
