The Africa Exhibit

Recently, the Minnesota Zoo started the Africa Exhibit. They have giraffes, ostriches, zebras, and gazelles. I went there, and got some cool pictures.

At first, the giraffes stayed far away. They seem to like to look at the animals in the nearby exhibit.
Then one of them wandered closer to our position.
Eventually, it ended up approaching the area that we were standing at. This picture was taken about 10 feet away from the giraffe. There was a rope preventing me from getting any closer.
It turns out that they're training the giraffes to walk up to people and eat crackers right out of their hands! That's going to be cool to see.
