Comments: Rothchild Giraffe strikes a goofy pose with the tip of his blue tongue sticking out, at the Giraffe Centre, a refuge for giraffes just outside Nairobi, Kenya, Africa. The saliva in his mouth has antiseptic properties that protects the giraffe when he is eating thorny bushes that might cut his mouth and lips.
