Tall order: Mealtime with giraffes at the Houston Zoo

According to the Houston Chronicle, mealtime for the Houston Zoo's 6,000-plus animals is a matter of culinary art and science. Each year, commissary workers dish up more than $700,000 in grub that would gratify the palate of the most discerning connoisseur (well, maybe except for the hay and insects).See a video about feeding at the Houston Zoo and read more about it.
