Giraffe and Calf

Giraffe and Calf - Tanzania

Giraffe and Calf – Tanzania

Acacia TreeEven the calf is tall enough to feed off this Acacia Tree, but I never saw the calf do anything but nuzzle its mother.

A close-up of the thorny Acacia tree is on the left, which is the giraffe’s favorite food.  Maybe baby giraffe is in no hurry to give up mother’s milk for a scratchy throat.

Thought for the Day:  You need that guy like a giraffe needs strep throat.                                                                                                                                                    Ann Landers
