Giraffe statue at Dallas Zoo
When the Dallas Zoo was remodeled, they constructed this massive giraffe statue that can be seen from I-35. The statue is really a neat thing to see, and the zoo is good too. Catch the train from a park and ride to save money on zoo parking.[Vanessa, 08/18/2002]
The Giraffe is promoted as the "Tallest Statue in Texas," a metal sculpture over 67 ft. tall just outside the zoo parking entrance. Randy Stevens writes: "Don't know exactly how tall it is, but it reportedly was going to be a tad shorter. When the giant Sam Houston went up on Hwy 45 it was designed to be barely taller. So Dallas put a blade of grass on the giraffe's tongue to gain the 'Tallest in Texas' title."
