For years, we only saw sheep, cows and Cookie on a daily basis. Those were pretty much the most interesting animals one would get in New Zealand. When we moved to South Africa, I felt like we were thrown into a situation very much like Lion King , the movie. All of a sudden, we got to see lots of animals in their natural habitat. I decided it was time to pick a favourite animal. And I found myself being drawn to the GIRAFFE. I like him when he looks stoned like he’s had too many glasses of whiskey. I like him when he’s being greedy, slurping up food with that yucky yucks awful black long tongue. I like his fur. I like his feet hooves. I like him when he’s standing tall. I like him when he’s lazing. I like him when he’s looking like ET . I even find his butt cute. Seriously, how can anyone resist this face?
