I've liked Giraffes ever since I was little. I just think they are awesome animals. They have a purple tongue, which is my favorite color. And it is so long and it's awesome to see them get food from trees. I love how tall they are and how friendly they are. I got a feed a giraffe once and that is a day I will never forget. I collect giraffe merchandise too, I have stuffed animals, figurines, posters. I just love this animal to death. If you could have one as a pet, I'd surely have one.
