Before this, BabySumoKids have only seen a giraffe from afar at the zoo. Here, you will get the chance to feed Rain and also pet him on the head .... he is so gentle and soft like a soft toy. His keeper called him over and he would put his head in between the wooden slits on the balcony. You can purchase some food (ie carrot sticks) at the counter for only RM2 per bucket. Giraffes have super long tongues; Rain would use his tongue to gently take the food from your hands. (Interesting fact: Apparently they use their long tongues to clean their ears too!). Truly a wonderful, memorable experience for the kids (and us adults too!).
Here is a short video I captured during our trip there, sharing the amazing moment between us and Rain. :)
Definitely one of the things you need to put on your bucket list!
