  1. Mary Beth Atkinson says:

    How wonderful! I love Victor Borge and it would have been great to see him at the zoo of all places!

  2. Mary Heimerman says:

    So, you think the giraffe was expressing an opionion?

    Actually, I wonder if the giraffes like music. They are very curious about people. I wonder if it was disturbing to them or if they liked the “entertainment”.
