|The giraffe family at Living Desert
The male and female stand differently when they eat, which allows one to know which sex they are when seen from a great distance. She arches her neck and body to eat lower shrubs and trees and he reaches to the tree tops of the acacia trees, their favorite. They are able to get most of the water they need as well as almost all nutrition from the acacia tree leaves.

I cannot show photos of the Living Desert without including some of the mini train display. This is amazing and has many working trains to watch cross trestles over canyons and rivers. The volunteers who have been involved in building this over the years have done an amazing job. Be sure to stop by and check this out should you be visiting the Living Desert.
I couldn’t possibly cover all the animals, birds, butterflies, reptiles……… and everything else in the Living Desert on this page. I have more photos to share of my favorite visit of this day, though. The cheetahs were magnificent so watch for that to be on here soon.
