Chiang Mai Zoo

Giraffe1

At the zoo in Chiang Mai, Thailand, you can buy bunches of raw string beans and bananas to feed the giraffes.

I love giraffes and it is amazing and unnerving to be so close to them.

They are absolutely enormous. From this picture you can see that this giraffe’s skull is probably about 30 inches long!

I laughed when I looked at these pictures later, because in my zeal to feed the giraffes, I seem to have just kind of pushed Deeds out of the way (see his feet languishing in the stroller behind me).

    Looks like a lot of fun! I had never realised just how large a giraffe’s head was!

    I love them too – gentle giants they are. Next time you go, feed one for me. Say – “this string bean is from Jamaise in the States.” Of course a Thai giraffe probably won’t understand English!

    Poor Deeds! Shafted by a giraffe. I’d probably do the same, since giraffes are so beautiful and gentle.

    That’s funny. You DID kinda brush your own flesh and blood aside for the sake of your own folly, didn’t you?
    Well, didn’t you?
    This is what they mean when they say having kids keeps you young.

    How neat to be able to feed the giraffes! I’ve seen them at the zoo before, but have never had the opportunity to get so close!
