Visitors celebrated World Giraffe Day Wednesday by getting up close and personal with Murphy.
It's a attractive day to celebrate the world's tallest animals.
The Memphis Zoo now has eight giraffes. In honor of world giraffe day all proceeds from the giraffe feeding deck will be donated to the giraffe conservation foundation to support giraffes in the wild during the month of June.

The zoo will have two feeding sessions daily.
"Over the past 30 to 40 years, the population has decreased nearly 30 to 40%, so it's a large drop in a very short period of time", says Laura Doty. Session one, from 11:30 a.m.to 12:30 p.m., is for zoo members only.
Guests can buy tickets at the main gate for $3 for members and $4 for non-members. Rates are $6 for children 3 to 15, $7 for seniors and $8 for other adults.
