Petite Giraffe for Sale :o)

I had intended to make an April Fools post, but time got away.

On Friday, someone came into my office and indicated that our internal "for sale" posting board had a recent sale of a petite giraffe, $5,700, and there was even a listing of six things for feeding.  This person indicated that they had to share this.  After about 15 minutes, I had to ask what day it was, and then the light bulb went off :o)

For more fun information, go here:


Petite Lap Giraffes are very funny animal that require special care. They need lots of love. Hugs and kisses every day. Otherwise they make tears.
If you have children, petite lap giraffes no problem. If child is loud, the giraffe will be shy, but does not bite. PLG’s are very clean. With training they will go in box like cats. Allergies never a problem.
Size: adult is 76 centimeters, baby is 15 centimeters tall. Weight is 4.5kg unless the giraffe is fat cow then 5.44kg
Diet: distilled water and bonsai tree leaves
Health problems: none. They are the best.
Gestation: 420 days
Living conditions: PLG’s love being indoors in filtered air conditioning. If they can listen to music of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov it is dream.
Grooming: a bubble bath once a week with purified water is all they need.
