    Yes, although the main problem with being a giraffe is getting a stiff neck all the time.

    Nowadays you can just buy a hamster or bunch of guinea pigs at almost any pet store. Getting a goat is more complicated I had cats and hamsters in my childhood but nowadays all I can afford are rats in my basement. By the way, any ideas how to get rid of them? I think that best solutions are covered in this article.

    I agree with this statement. As as kid I loved visiting a local zoo but with age I understood that even the best zoos harm animals and even the best zoo can't provide living conditions close to natural. Unless you're sheltering endangered species like tigers, then that's acceptable.

    Totally agree with those sentiments Nugs. We have a zoo in OZ at Dubbo (central NSW) where animals are left to roam in a large open range unlike the inner city Taronga Zoo where they are all caged.
