Best Local Animal at Zoo Boise

Giraffe

Readers' Picks

Even if there's no time to stroll around Zoo Boise, you can enjoy the giraffes from a vantage point in Julia Davis Park—few other cities can claim a walk through the park includes a view of giraffes sticking their heads over a fence. However, it's worth popping in to Zoo Boise and visiting the Giraffe Encounter (open 1:30-2:30 p.m. daily), where you can meet and feed Jabari and Julius, the zoo's Giraffa camelopardalis duo. They are definitely worth sticking your neck out for. zooboise.org

"Pssst. You gir-have to stop sticking out your tongue at the media. That's always the picture they use."
