Giraffe Feedings

See our giraffes like never before in this memorable up-close experience.

Feed the Giraffes

Meet the reticulated giraffes face to face when you offer them crispy lettuce leaves to eat — one of their favorite foods. The giraffes use their 18-inch-long prehensile tongue to retrieve the lettuce from the end of a stick.

We have several giraffes in our care, and because we are dedicated to giving them choices, you never know who will come forward for a feeding.
