    Houston Zoo live feed of the giraffes

    I found this interesting. Thought you might want to watch them too.
    There is a camera icon in the lower right corner. You can click on it and then look at the top right corner where there is a menu for you to change the view to see several different areas of the giraffe section

    Giraffes are very interesting creatures. I think it was this zoo that broadcasted a birth of a live birth.

    Had a good laugh when the "adopt me now" was there.

    I love animals but I find zoos terribly depressing. Big beautiful giraffes stuck in that little yard and they have to share it with zebras and emus. Bare earth and dead trees. And fences.

    I enjoyed watching this even if it is meant for kids.

    The zebras and ostriches are in the enclosure because that is a much more natural setting for all the animals as they are found together on the plains. Many zoos, including the Houston zoo, are doing this more and more and finding it very beneficial for all the animals!

    Think I'm watching when they are asleep. Only seen one walk across picture in two days.
