Animals Making Faces

Trying to get some good morning-light images at work this morning, and I thought as the giraffe came into their large grassy exhibit, that I would get some beautiful shots!  Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and one of our girls decided that she was going to stare at me (which I wanted), and make faces (which was hysterical). Giraffe tongues go non-stop, and Johari’s was no exception!

Of course, the little guys make faces not with their tongues, but with their tapir-like schnozes:
