I love giraffes! Last year for a while I followed the pregnancy and then birth and growing up of a young giraffe -- it was on a livestream camera at some zoo and it was fascinating. That little guy is all gown up now and I think in residence at another zoo. Here in the DC area we don't have any giraffes any more, sad to say, at the National Zoo. Not sure why, because they were always a popular attraction, almost as much as the pandas.
