Following on from our article yesterday comparing humans with giraffes, here is a video of giraffes diving into a swimming pool.
Yes, you read that correctly.
It would appear to us here at Minx Zoo that giraffes are naturally gifted divers, able to rival any olympic contender that we've seen competing. I just feel sorry for the poor giraffes that are hanging upside-down from the ceiling so that the other giraffes can use them to swing from.
Quite who would go to the trouble of building a pool and diving board specifically for giraffes remains a mystery. Though as the video is, of course, computer generated, I guess that question is rather irrelevant. Either way they've done a really nice job and it looks quite realistic!
Check it out for yourself and prepare to be amazed!
Welcome to Minx Zoo.
I am the Minx, and this is my zoo.
You'll find every kind of animal here; Four legged. Two legged. Ones with tentacles. Ones with trunks. Probably some made up ones as well.
If I feel so inclined at some point I might also add other things, such as instructions on how to get a donkey off a minaret, camel songs, 10 reasons why the zebra crossed the road illegaly and why pigs smile.
Have a look around and enjoy. Don't forget to bookmark us and check back regularly to see what new animals have been added!
