Kiko

I decided not to let the giraffes are outside today sign stop me from trying to seeing Kiko. I wandered past the sign up to the doors and as I looked inside there was a rather large face staring back at me. He was very interested in me and kept watching me while I tried to take photos. Sadly this is the best I could get though two doors but here he is. He is quite a bit bigger than Mstari but not Twiga sized.

      grrrr - I am going tomorrow and expected to get the first picture of him in Toronto!

      Oh well, I am glad it was you, who does not get too many visits.

      Sorry Mr Wrinkly. Try checking both doors. Maybe you will get lucky too. Odds are you can get a better shot than I will though. You just have so much more talent than me.

      I saw him during one of my last visits. Never got a picture close to being this clear. Nice shot.

      One thing one of the Keepers mentioned is that the size of his ossicones are huge compared to to the girl's. You can kind of see that in this picture.
    • Mr Wrinkly
      That viewpoint is now blocked off.
    • cypher
      Bound to happen eventually.

      How is it blocked? I walked right up to the door. All I had to do was go around the sign saying the giraffes are outside.
    • Mr Wrinkly
      Heavy brown paper is taped over the inside of the door.
    • TZFan
      I was sort of surprised it didn't have paper on it to begin with. Too bad you went one day too late, Mr Wrinkly. At least the wait to possibly see him again is down to a 21 day wait.
