Chris' trip to the Cheyene Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs

The giraffes love those crackers!

This guy tried to eat my hat. He thought it was a big cracker.

"Cracker Please"
Visitors can buy special alfalfa crackers to feed the giraffes. The walkways around the giraffe area are about 8 feet high, putting the giraffes at our eye level.

The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo has more giraffes than any other zoo. They currently have 20 Reticulated Giraffes.

"Mmmmmm, tasty child"

"Please love me"

"Hey, how'd you get so tall"

"This is my good side"

Pretty eyes

Feeding Time!
