i found this pic when i was trying to clean out random junk i don't need:
In order to get high enough I had to stand on top of the truck. Some baby.
I fed an adult one once. Never
again will I make that mistake!
Story was that I was on a highschool trip that went to a zoo. They had many kinds of animals. Including a couple of giraffes. Everywhere they had these little pellets you could get for a quarter. I looked at the giraffe, looked at the pellets, decided that there was no way that would work. I looked at the closely cropped grass in the giraffe's fence, and the long grass out of the fence and made a reasonable deduction. I reached down, picked a big clump of grass, and held it up.
Observation the first. The giraffe is fast
. I could not believe how quickly it arrived at my hand. I was in shock at how fast it was else the sight of something that big, headed towards me that fast, would have caused me to run away.
Observation the second. The tongue yanking the grass out of my hand is big and purple.
Observation the third. It slobbered like crazy!!!
Well as you can imagine, people noticed that I had a giraffe eating out of my hand. So some fellow classmates came up and asked me how I did that. I said all you had to do was tear off a big clump of grass and hold it up, but you really didn't want to do that. While one of them was asking why not, another was in the process of offering grass and discovering first hand why not.
Wash, rinse, and repeat several times. Leaving several people desperate to find a bathroom to clean off slobbery hands.
Much more pleasant was having a deer lick my hand on the same visit, before the unfortunate giraffe experience. It was a hot day and I'd had my hands in my pocket so they were sweaty. I saw the deer cage, knew the animals were pretty tame, and wondered if it would treat my hand as a salt lick. It did.
I was asked about how I did that one as well. However when I said "I had sweaty hands" people just looked confused.
