Photo: Atlanta Giraffes

I remember being a bit let-down by the giraffes at Zoo Atlanta. I remember Columbia's Riverbanks Zoo's giraffes and they seemed so much taller to me there. I don't think there is a reasonable explanation because I can't really understand why unless none of these are fully-grown which I doubt. 

But just like the zoo in Columbia, SC, Zoo Atlanta has a little area where you can trade the green in your billfold for green lettuce to feed the giraffe. I never had any interest doing it, but it was fun to watch other people give it a try.

I like giraffes, they seem such peaceful gentle animals.
Too bad they are in a zoo and not free.

From the pics, they do look as if they're not fully grown, eh? And we don't have the feeding thing here in Toronto. I would love to do that!

I read recently that giraffes are more diversified than previously thought, with four distinct species and a number of subspecies ~ so maybe that's why you observed differences between Atlanta's and Columbia's giraffes. It was very odd to visit Honolulu's zoo and see live giraffes with Diamond Head crater in the background. Dissonance for sure!
