... down but George goes to the hide. In about an hour, he comes charging into the room because a journey of giraffes is coming for a drink. I hurriedly get ready and make my way to the hide. As I make my way to the hide, there are zebra quenching their thirst. I am in time to watch a giraffe slowly and cautiously spread its long front legs so that it can get close enough to the water.
