Female giraffe enjoys Valentine's Day flowers at ZSL London Zoo
STORY: Zookeepers treated a female giraffe trio to an all-girl Valentine's Day treat at ZSL London Zoo on Friday (February 9).
Ellish and her girlfriends, Margaret and Mollie, enjoyed flowers presented in a heart-shaped wreath, ahead of February 14.
The zoo's giraffe keeper, Louise Jackobson said that like all ladies, the giraffes "love to receive a bunch of flowers", especially on such an event.
But the flowers did not last long, according Jackobson: "Led by queen bee Ellish, the single ladies used their dexterous elongated tongues to tug the pretty petals off the heart-shaped wreath in a matter of moments -- just like when they tug vegetation and flowers off the very tops of trees to eat."
