Giraffe? From Harry?

I guess I wasn't really visualizing how big they were, even with comparisons. I found this video, and when you see the head next to a person...! no giraffes were harmed in this video.


someone will have to do an umbrella acacia tree.... !! like in the image above

to go with all this African wildlife...

or is there one already available somewhere?

Yes but in a Zoo they are locked up. On a farm they, depending, they are mostly free to roam... kinda. I don't know... I like them wild, in the wild. Man with his penchant to cage things so he can look at them when he wants really bothers me. So I guess I mean it's like Chris and Co have created a Wild Bunch that lives in Farmica Zoolandia :p

You'd probably like the San Diego Zoo then. It's been many years since I've been there, but except for a huge aviary that's several stories high, the animals were pretty much non-caged. I think the only birds I saw caged were predatory, so it was for visitors' safety to have them caged, but I remember turning around to walk further down the path in the aviary, and almost stepped on a male peacock's tail feathers. Boy did I jump out of the way real fast.
