Back at the wildlife ranch, we finally had a chance to get some photos of some of the giraffes. They were REALLY cooperative, and stuck their heads over the fence to look at us. They have such LONG eyelashes!

They are rapidly becoming extinct in the wild. Unless things change rapidly, there may be no wild giraffes at all within 10 years. That would be a true loss.

And just so you know, the animals at the wildlife ranch have literally hundreds of acres of habitat in which to roam. Even those who have special enclosures - like the giraffes, are hardly limited. These just happened to be up near their sheds today, and therefore really close to the public.
