Going to feed Giraffe

Postby TamanduaGirl » Sun Nov 02, 2014 2:40 pm

I have an appointment to feed giraffe on the 13th. I'm so excited. Little does my BF know I plan to keep him there all day and look at everything else as well :)

I have been there, and met one of the vets on staff there. It's a pretty nice place! Enjoy feeding the giraffes. :)

Cool. :) I checked out their website, and it seems like a really fun place to visit. I'm glad they're doing so much in cheetah conservation. You'll have to take a lot of pictures when you're there. ;)

Yeah I'm bringing my camera. Hopefully the weather wont be too bad that day but if it is raining I'll just enjoy as many animals that aren't hiding from the rain as there are. Since we have reservations I assume the giraffe feeding will happen rain or shine. I got a raincoat.

Okay I took over 230 photos and kept 220 of them, ha so here's the album https://www.flickr.com/photos/tamanduag ... 975681678/

But I'll try to just post a few choice ones starting with the Giraffe. He was a 17 year old male. She said he was an alpha type male and didn't like to be touched so not to do that or he'd walk away in a huff and the feeding would be over. He was hanging out by the barn because his girl friend was being kept in for healing up from a run in with a cranky watusi. I also got a photo of an antelope with balls on the tips of it's horns so guess that was a cantankerous one too.

He was expecting this guy to give him carrots

While not technically part of the exhibit, I kept seeing the raven around and just missing catching him till he decided to stay still since he stole some cheetah meat. Speaking of the cheetah and tiger photos aren't so great because of the fences but they are in the album.

I was pleased to see the coatis were not fat. This one was hiding in plain site. The rest were foraging around but near the fence so not good photos. It's better when they are further back.

Walaroo These guys were in a walk through area with no fence

Bear They weren't hibernating yet but soon will be. The do private "encounters" where you can watch the bear hibernate too, through glass.

The cougars were grump. This one was growling at us to buzz off

Awesome stuff. icon-smile

That brown lemur is a "red ruffed lemur", though. (Wish I could have them some day.)
My main interest is in parrots, dogs, toothed whales and snakes.
Future animals I want to have when we have land are camels, wolfdogs/wolves, coyotes or jackals, striped hyena or aardwolf. Also poultry, rabbits water buffalo and/or yak for livestock.

Thank you. Now that you point it out that seems obvious. I should have kept the map that said what things were but I did know most of them, forgot some of the hoofstock though.

I love the photos. I wish I could go back, the vets that worked there were phenomenal. I know several of the cheetah keepers personally because they worked at the same rehab as me or I shared classes with them at OSU. :)

Gorgeous photos. I loved your little comments too, they gave the animals personalities in my head.

Thank you. The emu was especially funny because he was obviously doing it on purpose.

The cheetah keepers seemed nice. We went by there during feeding time so they were there and my BF talked to them a bit.
