Why do I dream of giraffes

Dream interpretation giraffe

The giraffe is the tallest animal living on land. With its high, long legs and very long neck, it is unmistakable. With the help of her physique, she is able to nibble on the foliage of tall trees. It has patterned fur that camouflages it well in its surroundings, and a long tail with a tuft of hair on the end that it can use to scare away flies. It is native to the African grassy steppe, south of the Sahara.

But although in Europe we can see her at most once in the zoo, she is also known here like a sore thumb. Her name originally means "the lovely one", which describes her character quite well. As a peaceful herbivore, it is said to be gentle, friendly, and has a big heart so that it can cope with the task of pumping the blood into the distant feet and head. Therefore, it is also considered an animal with a proverbial big heart.

These peculiarities, the size, the long neck and the heart, also play the main role in dream interpretation when it comes to looking at and interpreting the giraffe as a dream symbol.
