This was pretty cool.
I've always said God has a sense of humor because he created giraffes.
Click on the photo to view the video - it's just a couple minutes but worth watching...
I'm just glad I did not have to give birth to anything with hooves! And I'm sure Thomas was happy to not have to drop 6 feet immediately following his birth.
Honestly, I was most impressed with the length of the giraffe mom's tongue. If you watch the video you'll know what I mean.
Our zoo actually just opened an African exhibit and after one of our giraffes died suddenly and unexpectedly, we now have a new one, Julius, to keep the current one, Joseph, company - apparently very important for herd animals.
I'd love to hear what you think...
