It looks like a diorama but it's totally real!

I think the top picture looks so eerie it makes me doubt I was ever really at the Giraffe Centre in Nairobi. Of course, the fact that visitors instinctually took to mouth-feeding the giraffes with food pellets (???), and the fact that those majestic beings shared their habitat with a clan of hillbilly warthogs didn't make the experience any less surreal.

Anyway, a bit of mid week zoology for you: These are Rothschild giraffes, discernible by their white over-knee stockings.

I can hardly contain my fondness for these guys. so much character. (I was all, yo Pumbaaaaaa!)

P.S. This really was a lovely experience. Humbling and solid fun all at once :O)
