Gorillas and Giraffes
We will be studying Gorillas and Giraffes this week. The Tulsa Zoo has two female giraffes,one male, and one baby boy. The Tulsa Zoo does not have gorillas. The Oklahoma City Zoo has giraffes and several gorillas including two young ones. Giraffes are the tallest land animal and every giraffe has a unique spot pattern. Gorillas are the largest ape and are herbivores. Our letter is “G”, and our song is "Five Big Gorillas". Five big gorillas making a nest.
