Are the giraffes mean? 

"We currently have an exciting opportunity for a Keeper to join our hoof stock sections. For the right candidate, this post offers a fantastic opportunity to work with a wide variety of mammal species ranging from Black and Greater One Horned Rhinos, Giraffes as well as Grevy's Zebra, Onager and a range of Bovid's, Deer and Antelope."
