My Father's Photos for World Giraffe Day

I still have many, many photos to share from the bonanza that my sister sent me on an innocent-looking flash drive.  Did you know that June 21 is World Giraffe Day?  I learned that when I found several photos of giraffes among the collection.

The page I found that discusses World Giraffe Day has some factoids about them, but it doesn't mention that their tongues are purple.  I think I learned that watching an episode of Wild Kratts.  Scientists aern't sure, but the dark color of the tongue may help protect it from sunburn while the giraffe is eating.  Unfortunately, none of my father's photos shows that cool purple tongue.

I think that's my stepsister Cynthia in the last photo.
