Giraffes eat bread???? Wow, I didn't know that. But I guess they any just about anything.

Great photo!! Giraffes are beautiful animals.

Olivier said...

j'aime beaucoup, le theme choisi est tres bon et tres original. je ne savais pas que les girafes aimaient la baguette, mais question importante, avec ou sans beurre ? ;o)



I like much, the selected topic is very good and very original. I did not know that the giraffes liked the rod, but important question, with or without butter? ;O)

Kuanyin said...

Now this is a job I would love!!!!

GMG said...

Wow, this a great shot, and an incredible idea for a men at work picture.
I love Giraffes. Some of the best photos I have are from a Kenyan Safari with a giraffe ballet at Lake Nakuru taken in the 1990s

Great job and nice photo.

Mimmu said...

So different jobs , I did not see two photos about same job,even very usual jobs. This your work photo is certainly only one, I think! Very good photo and idea.

Nice relaxing weekend to you!

You sure he isn't a tourist?
Baguette hardly seems a healthy diet for a giraffe !

Jilly said...

No, he was a worker looking after the animals - not a tourist. The French often feed French bread to their animals. I've seen dogs fed baguettes too. Well, it's wheat. Certainly the giraffes went crazy for it. I watched for ages and they ate their way thru a fair bit of bread. They also ate some of the trees surrounding their pen which probably didn't please the Monaco authorities!

It must be nice working with animals! Better than an office job.

ohh so cute...:) I love this photo...its a pity i didnt recognise it earlier

Laurel said...

It s extremely wrong to keep these exquisite animals in inhumane captivity where they are unable to be free and roam. Shame on Monaco! This is the side of monaco that really reveals the principality's true colours - supporting captive zoos and circuses where animals are kept as slaves and beaten if they do not do as they are told. The tragic death of Nina the white tiger only demonstrates that Ranier couldn't give two hoots about the welfare of the animals as long as he and Monaco were making a fat ple of cash. BOYCOTT MONACO!!!!!!!!!!!!
