I recently spent a couple weeks in Kenya mostly working from sunup to sundown with Dr. Louise Leakey of the Turkana Basin Institute, Deming Yang of the National Museums of Kenya and my colleague Gonzalo Martinez.of Autodesk. I thought I might share a fun photo with you from the Giraffe Centre located just outside Nairobi Kenya before our research work in Northern Kenya began.
So here is me taking a big wet kiss from a rare female Rothschild Giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis rothschildi.)
Trivia: Giraffes can have a 50cm (about 19-1/2”) long sandpaper textures tongue with a slimy grass flavored slime coating.
I am still awaiting the call from this Giraffe, but sadly she has not called me yet.
