For $5 you can get three big pieces of lettuce and feed them to the Giraffe's. This Giraffe takes this piece of lettuce from the little boy ever so gently. They take it from adults in a gentle manner also but this Giraffe took more time and got its head lower in an opening to reach the lettuce that the little boy was offering. I thought it was the most special moment of all the feeding photos that I took that day.
