So I don’t know how you would celebrate your five year anniversary of the day you got engaged, but we celebrated by feeding a giraffe. Yuuuup, you read that right! Today we drove to the Tupelo Buffalo Park in Mississippi where you get to feed all kinds of animals including the giraffes!
Such a neat experience! His tongue was so long! The keeper told us that if we held food above his mouth that he would stick his tongue out to catch the food – note my delighted surprise in the bottom right photo when I experience this for the first time!
Hehe… this makes me laugh because of the sign. This little guy definitely didn’t bite us, though. He acted like a puppy dog with Christopher. He didn’t care about being fed, but he didn’t want Christopher to stop petting him! It was too cute!
This one cracks me up because Christopher’s face tells it all. He definitely did not trust those little goats to not attempt to eat his clothes (we have a picture from a petting zoo in St Louis where a goat is definitely attempting to eat his shorts, haha!)
They had a cute playground area complete with mock western village (a saloon, bank, church, jail, etc) and of course tire “horse” swings! It’s possible I’m a little tall for this, but it was still fun!
We had a great time! And this is just a few of the animals they had. I have well over a hundred photos so I’m just sharing our favorites. I have to say, it really is a unique experience to feed a giraffe! If you ever have the chance, I recommend it!
