Russia breeds petite lap giraffes

Allergic to cats? Can’t commit to walking a dog several times a day? The petite lap giraffe may be for you. Developed and bred on a farm outside Krasnodar in Southern Russia, these little longnecks are perfect for people with pet allergies, small children, or just a taste for tiny opulence.

The lap giraffes need a diet of bonsai tree leaves and filtered water, and prefer to be inside with air conditioning. They are ideal for travelers as they are under 11 pounds, under the weight requirement for many airlines. Plus, think of the adventure you’ll have traveling to Sokoblovsky Farms near the Black Sea!
