Went looking for Buck's Sierran Giraffes...

Postby Windwalker » Sun Jan 29, 2006 9:49 am

Thought they might winter over in the foothills. They must hibernate in the high country because this is all I found....

That's too funny Snow Nymph. Guess if I had been paying better attention I could have photo-shopped the image before uploading.

Nice pic! I know where the Sierran Giraffe winter but they're very hard to find, and once you find them, they are very hard to see. I have domesticated a couple of them and made pack saddles for them and everything. They're like huge llamas. Those things sure can haul a lot of gear. I'm glad you were able to locate the last wild herd of Sierran Bison. Their numbers are dwindling due to the Sierran Grizzly, which were thought to be extinct but I have spotted a number of them in very remote drainages, eating bison.
