Ntombi arrives at Port Botany in Sydney, Australia On His Way To Taronga's Western Plains Zoo

Curious How to Transport a Giraffe?

I love giraffes but even with all the things I do know about these guys, I never gave much thought about how you'd get the world's tallest animal from point A to point B . . . if walking was not an option! Now I've got my answer as this animal recently relocated from the Auckland Zoo in New Zealand to Taronga's Western Plains Zoo in Australia. How did Ntombi make the big trip? Why by a huuuuge boat of course, followed by a hitching a lift from this crane as he arrives at Sydney's Port Botany today.

This reminds me of the time I completely randomly mentioned to my husband that it would be really messy and unfortunate if we were to get into an accident with a truck transporting a whale.

That is the cutest thing I've ever seen! I love the "Giraffe on the move" sign.
