G is for Giraffe Poop (Thing)



In the early months of 1987, one chapter of my life had abruptly come to an end and I was in a holding pattern waiting to see what the next chapter would bring. One Saturday I visited a friend and spent the day with her at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago.

It was a nice seasonably warm day for late winter.  I remember we spent a lot of time watching my favorite animal the giraffe.  What I remember most about our visit to the giraffe enclosure was watching them poop.

I don't mean to be graphic, or disgusting.  I just found the way they relieve themselves to be so very interesting.  It comes out of the giraffe like a quick rain of pellets that hit the ground very quickly,  The giraffe just does his business while going about his business.

  1. LOL this gave me an interesting visual :)

    The girl's face in the giraffe cut-out is cute. Is the other one a lamb? Or a teddy bear?

  2. As weird as it was reading about the giraffe poop, it didn't disgust me nearly as much. I've been to a zoo once. About 3 years ago and I remember the zebras only because my sisters were teasing me about having worn zebra print for the occasion. I just happened to blend in with the zebras. xD

    It's amazing though what our minds hold onto. The littlest, most random and sometimes not so visually pleasant (lool poop) visuals.

    Thanks for sharing, HSD!
