binomial nomenclature two names
Binomial Nomenclature (two names)
  • My animal of the future’s common name is Giranda.
  • It is a mix between 2 mammals, the giraffe and the panda bear.
  • My animal also has a scientific name. Its scientific name is Giraffamelanoleaca.
  • The genus is the giraffe’s genus in the scientific name and the species is the panda’s species in its scientific name.
the body structure and appearance of the giranda
The body structure and appearance of the Giranda.
  • The giranda has an interesting shaped body. It has the body shape of a panda and the headof a giraffe.
  • The giranda is an endoskeleton animal. It has fur, a plump body, and a really long neck.
  • The giranda has 11 appendages if you count the nose, ears, tongue and the little horns on the top of its head. The other appendages are the 4 legs and the tail.
  • The giranda walks around on all fours. It is like a little baby that crawls around EVERYWHERE!!!


The special structure on the giranda are its horns. They help the giranda tell which way the wind is blowing and which way they need to travel.

the g iranda s diet
The Giranda’s diet
  • The giranda is a herbivore which means it only eats plants and greens. It does NOT eat meat!
  • To get its food, the giranda uses their long, strong tongue to wrap around the stick of bamboo and pull it out of the ground. Then they chew it up like us humans do. If it is getting leaves off of a tree it stretches out its neck to reach the leaves, then the giranda pulls off the leaf and chews it up.

the g iranda s habitat
The Giranda’s habitat
  • The girandas live in a very rare environment. They live in the Savana grasslands, but the twist is that they live in a forest that is found in the grasslands.
  • They live in a group of 2 to 4 girandas. Some prefer to live on there own because they get competitive for food and they don’t like to fight so they just split up.
  • The girandas sleep under trees in the forest. They love shade so they stand under the trees most of the day unless they are moving around and looking for water.
  • The only time they get to lay down is when they sleep so they make themselves comfortable and have good night sleeps.
habitat cont
Habitat (cont.)
  • The giranda has very few predators. The most common is the leopard. It is actually the giranda’s only predator besides the king cobra snake.
  • A mutualism synbiotic relationship the giranda shares with is an egret. Both benefit from the relationship. The egret rides on the giranda’s back, eating the ticks and other parasites off. This keeps the giranda healthy and gives nutrition to the egret.
the life of a giranda
The life of a giranda

The life cycle of a giranda

Warm blooded or cold blooded?

The giranda is warm blooded because it is a full mammal. And most all mammals are warm blooded.

  • The girandas breed in the rainy season so they can give live birth to their babies in the dry season. They live to be at least 22 ½ years old. Some live to be 37 if they are really healthy.
the giranda s senses
The giranda’s senses
  • The giranda can hear, taste, see, and smell.
  • Hear- it uses its ears to hear predators coming and to hear the other girandas communicate.
  • Taste- it puts food in its mouth and there are little bumps on the tongue that help the giranda know what they are eating by the taste of it. (taste-buds)
  • See- it uses its eyes to see what is going on around them. They also keep alert for any dangers and they hardly ever blink or close their eyes.
  • Smell- it uses its nose to find good food and they can tell direction by smelling the air.
  • Girandas communicate by stomping their hooves on the ground. It is interesting how they read each other because they have special patterns to describe how they are feeling, and what they think they should do.

How does it protect itself?

How could humans affect the survival of the giranda???????

Humans could affect the survival of the girandas by polluting the air. This causes the giranda to suffocate and its lungs collapse and it dies after a few months.

  • To protect itself, the giranda holds its neck up high and strong to make it look bigger and stronger than it really is. This scares predators away.
