While we were at the zoo
we got to feed the giraffes. Grace
was able to do it all by herself.
Brilyn needed a boost! But - once she
was lifted up, she could feed the
giraffe all by herself, too.
I think both girls enjoyed
helping care for the animals.
There were no lines, so once we went
through the two plates of lettuce
I bought, Andrew bought more
so Brilyn could feed the giraffes again.
The zoo keeper that was stationed at this
attraction told us a lot of things
about giraffes. For instance - those little
bumps on their horns are bigger and
more frequent in male giraffes than in females.
And - they make the males more attractive
to the females.
The giraffe the girls were feeding was a male.
This one is a female.... and together they have
a baby that was in the giraffe yard
behind them. It didn't come up to eat.
I wonder if maybe it's neck isn't long enough to
reach over the fence just yet?
AND WE WILL BE DRAWING FOR THE
HEARTS 4 HEARTS GIRL DOLL THIS EVENING!
WINNER TO BE POSTED TOMORROW!
