Curves Are Beautiful

A rising celebrity resides at the local zoo in Santa Barbara, California. With a neck curved at almost 90 degrees, it's no wonder this unusual giraffe named Gemina is a hit with zoo visitors. Gemina started out life as a normal giraffe. But from the age of three, her neck started curving to one side, finally resting at a right angle. And while the bend in her neck may look uncomfortable, Gemina doesnt act any differently that her tall brethren.
