There is no doubt about it.
Giraffe are one of the tallest animals on this planet.
This is not an evolutionary mistake – it has taken eons for their species to evolve that long neck and those long, strong, legs.
Quite simply – they can now reach into the trees where few others can go. So all those tasty leaves are left untouched until a hungry giraffe happens by.
Sometimes though, all that extra height just isn’t enough 😦
To get to those delectable shoots, just beyond one’s reach, it is necessary to gain an extra little bit of height by using your tongue!
This post is a response to the Weekly photo challenge: Beyond. This giraffe was a delight to watch in real life and I still get a giggle every time I look at the photo below 😆
