Happy 6th birthday Nuru!
Nuru the giraffe turns 6 today, 24 February 2022. To celebrate, keepers made her a special birthday cake and treated her to her favourite veggie snacks.
Just look at that tongue - a giraffe's tongue is prehensile, which means it's adapted to grasping food and objects, and it's about the length of our forearms!
