Get up close and personal with Aj, Bonsu and Juma, the zoo's three male giraffes! Feed them along with their zookeepers, but watch out for their 15-inch long tongues because they will snatch the lettuce right out of your hand if you’re not paying attention! Our boys are friendly and truly enjoy the special treats given to them by their visiting friends and above all, they promise to provide a fun experience.   $2 tokens are required and are sold at the ticket counter near the Kalahari Research Station as soon as the keepers give the green light that the giraffes are ready. AJ was born on March 27, 2008, Bonsu was born on September 28, 2008 and Juma was born on June 1, 2007.  AJ and Bonsu were born at Disney World in Florida.  Juma was born at the Albuquerque Zoo in New Mexico.
