Talking with giraffes at the Riga Zoo, Latvia

After two decades of absence – previously giraffes lived at the Riga Zoo in 1972-79 – these gracious animals are back in town! Four adult males of Rothschild subspecies – eight-year old Pik and Periscope, four-year old Usmi and three-year old Kimi – now all live in a newly built, comfortable and spacious Giraffe House.

Meeting giraffes “in person” was quite an emotional experience. With legs of a man’s height, giraffes walk quickly, and as one of them approaches us at a moment’s notice and carefully bends down his head to examine us closer, it feels both odd and moving.
Curious yet shy, giraffes won’t let us touch them, so mild voice and friendly look leave us the only way to communicate. They may seem silent, but in fact giraffes mostly “speak” at an infrasound level, inaudible for human’s ear.
