How tall is a Giraffe?

We are currently looking for places to visit a real-life giraffe. Kate wants to know how tall they are. But when I suggested we look it up on the computer, she responded, “No, mom! I want to see one.” Barring travelling to Kenya, so far we’ve identified these possibilities:

- The new baby giraffe at the Los Angelos Zoo (http://www.lazoo.org/zoo_headline2.asp?id=27) Their website even has a web-cam to watch the giraffe. A good friend of mine lives within 5 minutes of the zoo and says her daughter loves to stop by to say hi to the new giraffe.

- The Sacramento Zoo (http://www.saczoo.com/)

- The San Diego Zoo and San Diego Wild Animal Park (http://www.sandiegozoo.org/animalbytes/t-giraffe.html)

- The Oregon Zoo in Portland, OR (http://www.oregonzoo.org/Exhibits/afsavanna.htm)

And the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, CO has a live web-cam of their giraffe exhibit at http://www.cmzoo.org/zoocam.html.

Know of any other good places to visit giraffes, please share them with us!
