(One of a few zoos to offer this unique experience)
A giraffe's 18-20 inch tongue is prehensile which allows it to grasp leaves and other food including zoo treats which are available for sale at the zoo.
The spot pattern on every giraffe is different which makes identification easy. Skipper who is almost 18' tall greets guests eye to eye.
