1. Giraffes are known to be able to chew and digest almost anything....

on edit: Actually I am assuming that the giraffe can eat like a goat. With a neck like that though, you would thing it has to be somewhat selective about it's food choices.

Hmm. I wonder what the incidence of oesophageal cancer is in giraffe populations.

2. Voice of experience, here.

Both my daughter and I have had giraffes "go for the hair" while touring Scottsdale's Out of Africa park in a double-decker bus. We had giraffe treats and were in range, after all. At first it was rather alarming, what with the yard-long purple tongue. At least it didn't have bad breath, being a herbivore. Once we got over the shock of having this enormous head in our laps, slurping up snacks, we fell in love with the beast's astonishingly beautiful eyes. You haven't lived till you've had a giraffe bat its long eyelashes flirtatiously at you!

3. I had one eat a head of lettuce off of my wife's head at Tampa Busch Gardens.

I wonder how that got there.

Come to think of it. Noots head resembles a head of lettuce.
