If you have children, petite lap giraffes no problem. If child is loud, the giraffe will be shy, but does not bite. PLG’s are very clean. With training they will go in box like cats. Allergies never a problem.
Size: adult is 76 centimeters, baby is 15 centimeters tall. Weight is 4.5kg unless the giraffe is fat cow then 5.44kg
Diet: distilled water and bonsai tree leaves
Health problems: none. They are the best.
Gestation: 420 days
Living conditions: PLG’s love being indoors in filtered air conditioning. If they can listen to music of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov it is dream.
Grooming: a bubble bath once a week with purified water is all they need.

Absolutely goregous! I'm going to get myself a couple.

Edit: a tad disappointed to find myself number 659,587 on the waiting list, though.

They're ideal for the BBQ season. Big giraffes take far too long to cook and you can never get them done in the middle.

I sent the link to my mum, with a note saying I was thinking of getting her one for her birthday.

I haven't heard back, I do hope she's wondering how to politely break it to me that she wouldn't want really one because of the responsibility and because she would have no-one to leave it with when she goes on hol etc. Ungrateful, a tad?

Did you notice the one on the running machine? Maybe she was concerned she was turning into a fat cow!

I don't think it's fair to only get one. It'd get lonely. You need to get them in pairs or more, imo. Do like the OP. Get four!

I'm only hoping that my staffy treats mine nicely. I wouldn't want to end up with mini pocket giraffe steaks
