An interesting animal, the giraffe. Exotic color and markings, obscenely tall (over 15′) with spindly legs, surprisingly quick and agile, gentle demeanor, and a very particular eater. Its main food source is the thorny acacia tree, consuming 100 lbs of leaves and twigs per day.
This photo was taken in the in Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater, where the giraffe is the country’s national symbol.
Thought for the Day: The best way to show your love for a giraffe is to knit a scarf for it.
