Giraffe Teleology


A five-day-old baby giraffe was introduced to the public yesterday at The Safari in Ramat Gan, Israel. (The Safari, as the website explains, is the combination of an African animal park and the former Tel Aviv Zoo. It “is the largest animal collection in the Middle East and is unique in the world, because of the large herds of mixed species of African animals that roam the spacious African Park.”) There’s a good slide show of the giraffe here.

Some of the photos impressed upon me the point that the baby was born at just the right height to reach under her mother Denisa and get milk. How about that! It’s enough to make you believe in intelligent design. Then again, I suppose giraffe mothers could have been designed to lie on their sides while nursing, allowing for shorter babies.
