Sleeping Flamingos & Dead Tree Giraffes

The carvings of the giraffes were amazing. It doesn't show on the picture, but at the bottom of the carvings was the rest of the tree stumps. They were two trees that had died, and the zoo (in a surprising burst of creativity) carved them into two giraffes.

I will soon be getting to the pictures from the Natural History Museum, fossil sea stars found in Oklahoma (that boggles the mind, doesn't it?), giant skeletons, a mammoth sculpture with a santa hat on. I know you can't wait.
