Feeding the Tallest Mammal in the World

One of my kids favorite things to do at the zoo is feed the world’s tallest mammal, the 17-foot giraffes…right out of their little hands! The giraffes, like me, are fans of crispy Romaine lettuce. Romaine lettuce leaves are $2.50 per leaf or 3 for $5 and is available at the giraffe deck site, open weather permitting.

While you’re there, meet the zoo’s 2 newest babies!

Former Art Director for Home Magazine, Heather Leahy Zachariah, left her career in publishing after baby number number one. She now works from home as a freelance graphic designer and a chauffeur to her 3 busy kids. "Working on TipsFromTown has been a wonderful outlet for me. It renewed my love of publishing where I can design colorful, enticing pages online and allows me to share the things I love about being a mom." Heather grew up in Shaker Heights, Ohio, a place that still is near and dear to her. " After living in Brooklyn for 18 years and studying Graphic Design at Pratt Institute, she now lives in the Jersey burbs. "I love living so close to NYC, but in my heart, I'm an Ohio girl."
