A highlight of Zoo Miami is the Samburu Giraffe Feeding Station. While standing on a tall, wooden platform, you can be eye-to-eye with a herd of reticulated giraffes. This interactive attraction allows you to hand out greens and watch as an enormous black tongue measuring 14 to 18 inches removes the snack from your hand. Do not worry if you arrive late in the afternoon. These Somali giraffes will still be hungry. Males have a capacity to eat 75 pounds of food a day.
