Birds do it, bees do it, bet you didn’t know that these do it.

I think it’s a fake. It almost looks real, but then I wonder why there would be no fences or barriers. Are Girraffes roaming through parks now?
It’s very natural.
The zoo is natural too, built and dredged to appear a natural habitat. What you don’t see is probably an impassable trench back there.
…with electrified razor wire at the bottom to keep those savage giraffes at bay!
This picture will show up later in porn for giraffes, with the human’s head cropped out.
Big G back there is TOTALLY posing!
Clearly this would constitute a “teachable moment”.
crazy how the giraffe’s front right leg looks too long—-also thanks for the head’s up on how to zoom Delilah, so naughty—LOL
As my old friend’s mom explained when he saw two dogs engaged in similar repast, “That one in front is sick, and the other one is pushing him to the hospital.”
First time I’ve heard it explained that way!
PDA-when you’re too big to just get a room.
No honey the giraffes are not playing leap frog, it’s . . . well . . . . she’s giving him a piggy back ride.
Looks like a giraffe back ride to me
“Look Mommy the giraffe’s are fighting!”
“I heard they are feeding the hippos, let’s hurry over and watch.”
Does that fence really work??
“Not Awkward,” anyone? Anyone? Hah, didn’t THINK so.
This is a fairly recent photo, my daughter has the same shirt, purchased last summer.
I know just where this was taken, the Cape May Zoo in NJ!
Wow, really? Last time I was there, the zoo only had one giraffe in the middle area. Is this the new Savannah part of the zoo? I gotta get back down there, I’m missing all the action.
You know – I had the same thought! I was just there last week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks. I will now chuckle every time I go to Toys R Us and see Jeffrey the mascot as he walks the aisles.
Yes, it’s photoshopped just like ever other picture on the internet.
Those kind of comments really shouldn’t be allowed through the filters.
Well, if it is shopped, it kinda is cheating, isn’t it? People could create all manner of images just for this site. But then it is not an “Awkward Family Photo”
Someone photoshopped these comments in here.
I see an extra leg.
The giraffe teams are playing football. They’re just making the goal post.
Notice where the focus is.
what are the chances?
zoo keeper! those animals are killing each other!
“He’s trying to jump over her but he can’t”
Well there is nothing that kills “the mood” quicker than witnessing giraffes “loving” one another.
Giraffe 1: “Not in the middle of the day!”
Giraffe 2: “Don’t worry dear, I’m sure no one will notice”
“The children were nestled all snug in their wee little beds,
While visions of fornicating giraffes danced through their wee little heads.”
You want your kids to have “educational” experiences, but geez….. not THAT educational!
@Sandradee – if it had been my parents, they totally would have seen it when they took the photo. “kate, move just a smidge to the left! There’s a gorgeous tree back there that I think will frame this shot beautifully!”
oh look! another picture from the Playboy Mansion’s Petting Zoo!
How did they not see this when they took the picture???
Giraffes are so inconsiderate.
Great comment! LOL
That’s one long…um…neck.
I was thinking the same thing!
July 22nd is my wedding anniversary so this is the perfect picture for today! Except, of course, I didn’t marry a giraffe. Just in case anybody was wondering…
I like how the kid is blurry and the giraffes are in focus.
I’ve never needed a zoom option on this website more!!!
At first I was thinking this was awkward b/c that girl looks eerily like I did at her age, only she’s less awkward, owing to her two distinct eyebrows…
Personally, I’ve never needed a zoom option less on this website. I’ve seen all I need to know.
ctrl + mouse wheel = zoom
Well, if I didn’t learn any education from above – I certainly did here. Cool trick. Thanks! But I don’t think I will use it on these giraffes. LOL.
I got what I deserved for trying that little trick. Couldn’t make it zoom back out. Feeling pretty lame about now.
Control + (bigger) and Control – (smaller) works for me.
I knew they did it, but couldn’t imagine how. Thanks to AFP, now I can’t stop imagining how.
This is very awkward if you don’t notice the giraffes.
My husband and I have also seen giraffes mate at the zoo, and much closer to the spectators than in this photo. The giraffe act itself is incredibly awkward: it’s amazing they propagate at all.
I’m more worried about drop the baby giraffe has to take in the first few moments of life! I’m envisioning an otherwise tranquil scene on the African savanna where a hyena follows around the mom giraffe wearing a catcher’s mitt.
soon after I would awesome they had “The Talk”
They can just say, “Look dear, the giraffes are dancing. How sweet!”
Dad took the photograph and its obvious where the focus is. Darling daughter is pushed off to the side and blurry but those 2 necking in the back are nice and clear.
OMG! if she only knew…
Oh, she knows…
Oh dear! Doin’ it like they do it on the Discovery Channel. Don’t need to zoom….
Class Field Trip:)
OMG you can’t make this stuff up! It’s actually a great photo….hysterical. One she can laugh at when she is older….wonderful!
Yeah maybe she’ll laugh at it when she’s older. But now? I’m not so sure.
Hey Suzy and Rachael look at the picture that Dad took of me at the zoo. Cool huh? What are the giraffes doing? What do you mean? Huh? DAAAADDDDDD!!!!!!!!
And wait until Mom sees it. Oh boy. Dad is really gonna hear about this photo for a long time.
Welcome to Giraffic Park!
Who ever said animals don’t breed in captivity?
HOW DID THE PHOTOGRAPHER MISS THIS?!
Who said the photographer missed it?
