The giraffes are in the feeding unit, behind their outdoor enclosure, and in this confined space, with their webbed exteriors, they remind you of other confinements where humans wear uniforms.
I’ve seen giraffes only on the screen before. They are a unique breed, with no extant species even close in resemblance, which makes them look like animals from another planet. Tall and ungainly from a distance, they appear graceful and innocent up close. I stand watching them for a few minutes, unable to take my eyes away.
