So, here is a picture of my new love...
Petite Lap Giraffes
Yes you read that right... PETITE LAP GIRAFFES. They have recently been featured in 2 different commercials on tv- so you might have seen them before. How could you miss them? Now I realize with 99% certainty that these babes might not be real, but who cares? They're the sweetest looking things I've ever seen! Check out Sokoblovsky Farms in Russia and you can even watch a live webcam- and those are hard to fudge so my hopes of them being real just increased a bajillion fold. Just to indulge this fantasy of mine to have one of these- I figured I'd give you the stats so you can get your heart beating a little harder with anticipation of how amazing these little ones are:
Petite Lap Giraffes are very funny animal that require special care. They need lots of love. Hugs and kisses every day. Otherwise they make tears.
If you have children, petite lap giraffes no problem. If child is loud, the giraffe will be shy, but does not bite. PLG’s are very clean. With training they will go in box like cats. Allergies never a problem.
Size: adult is 76 centimeters, baby is 15 centimeters tall. Weight is 4.5kg unless the giraffe is fat cow then 5.44kg
Diet: distilled water and bonsai tree leaves
Health problems: none. They are the best.
Gestation: 420 days
Living conditions: PLG’s love being indoors in filtered air conditioning. If they can listen to music of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov it is dream.
Grooming: a bubble bath once a week with purified water is all they need.
