"Giraffes first came to this planet nearly five-hundred thousand years ago, on a conveyor belt. No one is sure where the conveyor belt came from, because the pieces of the conveyor belt recovered for scientific study – in 1973, in Middleton, New Jersey, by Arni Arharsson, originally from Iceland – are being hidden from the authors, Dr. and Mr. Haggis-On-The-Whey, by governmental stooges." LOVE THIS BOOK!!! :)
Shona Giraffe Sculpture Per the website, "Shona is a 20th-century name given to a number of related ethnic groups in Zimbabwe. They speak similar dialects of a standardized Shona language, and many trace their ancestry back to the 12th-century capital city of Great Zimbabwe, whose ruins are now a UNESCO World Heritage site." more information can be found at http://shop.nationalgeographic.com/ngs/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=72046&code=NGDAM00001&source=NG2R7710017.
