Just saw the new baby giraffe at Riverbanks Zoo on the news – TOO CUTE! Hard to believe that at 10 days old he is nearly as tall as I am! Next to cats (of all types), the giraffe is my favorite animal. They are so weird looking, but cute and fascinating.
I love the fact that Riverbanks allows you to feed the giraffes – which lets you get up close with them. When we took the biology classes there last year, the giraffes were the crowd favorites.
If you haven’t visited Riverbank’s website, I encourage you to do so. They have a live webcam – today they are featuring the Koalas. The last time I watched, they featured the penguins. I wonder if they’ll feature the giraffes soon now that baby Lewis has arrived?!
