RE: Weekend on Florida's First Coast
BB: Your giraffe pics remind me of several years ago when I was at the DFW airport and I had about six hours to kill before my flight. At that time, there was a drive through Africa zoo just south of the DFW airport. I paid admission and they gave me a bucket full of food (actually I paid for it) and I started driving through the zoo. The animals were very use to being fed and since this was mid week, they did not have hardly any traffic at all. I fed most of the animals and when I got to the giraffe's I barely had any left. As you can see by the pic you took, they have a very large and long tongue. There was not much left and the giraffe because apparently very agitated and began sticking his huge head in the window of the car. When he or she realized there was nothing left in the three gallon bucket, it bit the mirrow of my rental almost all the way off.
When I turned the car back into Hertz, they were very curious about the mirror. I told them the story and they did not believe me until they saw the teeth marks in the plastic and mirror. What an experience. No charge as they indicated that they thought they had seen everything and that was the #1 sight.
