Lions and Giraffes and Bears! Oh My!

In case you didn't know this about me already, I LOVE animals. All of them. Except spiders. Also, in case you already didn't know this about me, my favorite animal is the giraffe. One of the top things on my bucket list is to feed a giraffe (since it's fairly obvious that I'll never get to own one). So, when the NC Zoo announced they were opening a giraffe feeding station, I was so excited! Problem. All but one are still very young and shy, so I didn't get to feed giraffes today, but I did get to go out on the deck and meet the keeper.

I also got to see all of the other amazing animals they have. I am truly in my element in a zoo. And the only reason I'm not working here now is because I couldn't stomach formaldehyde in order to take all of the biologies needed.

With that, here are just a few of my favorites from today:

I guess you could say that I was at one with nature today, huh? *hint, hint*

Which one's your favorite?

You went to North Carolina to feed a giraffe?

And your little nature reference was poorly hidden

About Me

My photo
I'm a walking contradiction. While I love to draw, paint and read, I also love all things gadgets, science and even science fiction (I know). My animals (two dogs and two birds) are my heart, and if I could figure out how to legally own a giraffe, I would. That all said, I have my BS in Mathematics. :o)
