My spouse sometimes uses the same method to weigh our dogs, although they’re slightly smaller than a baby giraffe. Hey, it’s cheaper than buying a veterinary scale.
Whatever works! That is how I weigh backpacks, dogs, bicycles and most handhold-able things.
I’d have guessed a heavier duty version of this for baby giraffes though.
I’m sorry, but this does beg the question: How much does a baby giraffe weigh?
Update: Never mind - I should click through on the link more often. 150 lbs!
This is horrible! Everybody knows that you take their toupee off before weighing a baby giraffe. Are you trying to give the poor thing body image issues???
He’s 150 lbs of doesntgiveafuck based on his facial expression
The cute is strong with this one!
Looks like a bunch of guys settling a bar bet.
I got to pet an adult giraffe at the zoo. I held up my hand and it leaned over the fence and let me scratch its jaw. It licked my arm with a tongue nearly as big a my arm. The zookeeper yelled at me - he probably thought I was feeding it.
Those tongues are impervious to nasty acacia spines, very cool. Also, they do this sometimes:
Which is enough for me to chicken out and run the other way if I see a giraffe coming at me.
This is how I weigh my luggage when I’m travelling, and also how I weighed my children when they were too small (or too impatient) to stand on the scale themselves.
