Giraffe Chasing a Butterfly (Video)

Once this adorable baby giraffe spots a butterfly at the Bronx Zoo, he immediately takes off and follows it amongst the trees. The baby giraffe runs in circles after it, but gives up after a couple of seconds because he realizes that the butterfly is too fast for him. He eventually comes to a halt and continues with what he was previously doing with his mother.

This beautiful creature live in captivity ....he will never experience the feeling of freedom in his natural habitat.
Therefore, I can't feel joy as some others here.

I think the Giraffe was inspired by the butterfly to exercise a little at the same time...

I'm not sure if he was chasing the butterfly, but seeing it inspired a moment of sheer joy in him. How do people ever lose this sense of awe and wonder as they mature? It's a pity.
