Giraffes find love
Two-year-old Genevieve the giraffe gingerly pops her head out of her enclosure as she nervously prepares to meets long-standing bachelor six-year-old male giraffe, Gerald, at Noah's Ark Zoo Farm, Wraxall, Somerset. Genevieve has travelled 1000 miles in special transport by road and ferry from a zoo in Eastern Europe to pair up and keep Gerald company, who's closest companion for the last four years has been Eddie the goat.
