On my biking trip through Regent’s Park on Saturday, I suddenly found myself in front of a giraffe. Or rather two of them! I knew that London Zoo is located in Regent’s Park, but I had no idea you could see the giraffes this closely from the road.
I would also like to add that I don’t recommend you to visit the zoo, despite it’s beautiful location in the park and next to the Regent’s Canal, to see Gideon in this tiny confined space broke my heart. How bored he must be. Gideon does live quite close to me, so I intend to visit him regularly.
And while we are at Animal news, here are two more stories that will make you smile:
- Ralph the penguin gets sunburn wetsuit. And better, he seems absolutely delighted to swim around with it.
- Lucky a two month old duckling faced being put down because of a fracture on her leg, but a very good hearted woman refused to give her up. She asked a cobbler to make a sandal for Lucky so the duckling was able to swim. Lucky is now a happy duckling again. And see the video here.

I know it’s a small zoo, because I visited it last time I was in London (at night!), but it’s a great place to walk around.
I suggest you also draw a giraffe and send it in: http://olahelland.net/giraffes/. :-)
I actually hate Zoos. Putting animals in tiny confined spaces… Love your friend though.
Wonder where the name comes from ;o)
