Cute, huh? Well, I also happened to notice that the barn looks awfully familiar, as does the keeper… and then I realized it was the new giraffe baby at the Virginia Zoo. ^_^
This is actually the most accurate way to weigh a large baby– it’s not like you can explain to them how to step onto a tiny scale, and a big scale might be scary, so just holding them and subtracting your own weight works quite well.
Anyway, it was one of the photos of the day yesterday and I was entertained that, thanks to the internet, people in the UK get to appreciate the cuteness of Virginia Zoo’s new baby giraffe, and that I get to see it as well.
