Margaret The Giraffe


This was forwarded to me in an email and I just had to share this story with all of you. Enjoy.

She is not just pretty, she is beautiful and precious and a wonder.

Her eyes are beautiful. Most babies measuring 5 ft would be considered big, but newborn giraffe, Margaret, at Chester Zoo , U.K. , is seen as unusually small for her species. She is one of the smallest giraffes ever born at Chester Zoo but pint-sized Margaret will soon be an animal to look up to [5ft Tall at birth and she's considered 'little', THAT is amazing!]

Little Margaret, who is the first female Rothschild giraffe born at the zoo, is being hand-reared by her dedicated keepers. The first calf for six-year-old mum Fay, Margaret, who was born two weeks early, tipped the scales at just 34 kilos (75 lbs) and is a mere 5 ft tall.

Tim Rowlands team leader of the Giraffes section, said: 'Margaret is one of the smallest giraffe calves we have ever seen. Fay isn't the largest of giraffes and Margaret was also early which might go some way to explaining her size. Margaret was having difficulty suckling, so our keeper team are now hand-rearing her'.

Btw: those eyes of hers are only slightly smaller than a baseball!

Baby Bears Take Over Child's Playground.


Only in Montana!
A family that lives on the outskirts of  Missoula , Montana decided to build a sturdy, colorful playground for their 3- and 4-year-old sons. They lined the bottom with smooth-stone gravel all around to avoid knee scrapes and other injuries.
 
They finished building it one Friday evening and were very pleased with the end product.
The following morning, the mom was about to wake the boys up and have them go out to play in their new play center.. This is what she saw from the upstairs window.

To Hell and Back—The Story of Michael Vick’s Pit Bulls | www.cesarsway.com

I have followed the Michael Vick story and the story of his dogs. It's a horrific story and an insight into a horrible life style of animal abuse. Through this tragedy much light has been shed on the disgusting practice of dog fighting. It's so nice to be kept up to date on the story of the dogs and see how well many of them are doing. Jim Gorant's book The Lost Dogs will tear at your soul and expand your heart. If you missed my review of The Lost Dogs you can read it here.

Introducing My Husband Randy!!

Hello everyone, due to some big social media projects I'm currently working on my husband Randy has offered to take over posting on Incredible Creatures for awhile.

Say hello and give him a warm welcome. He's thinking about creating a series on different animals.
Anything in particular you would like to learn more about? Any animals you need information about for a homeschooling or school project. Just leave him a comment and let him know. He's all yours for awhile. :)
