All the animals were munching fresh greens grown at the zoo Monday morning.
It was cool but sunny, and everyone seemed extra playful. The lions paced. The red pandas scampered. Siamangs swung through their playground. Snakes slithered. Isaac climbed onto the brass rhino and tortoise all by himself. Eloise chomped baby biscuits.
I love living so close to the zoo. My favorite part was seeing the new two-year-old giraffe, who arrived just two days prior. The zookeeper informed my friend Peyton and me that the other female giraffe is probably pregnant, so we will keep lurking around the zoo in hopes of seeing a baby giraffe before we move away next summer!
Giraffes are pregnant for like 15 months. So there’s a reason to be glad you’re not a giraffe.
