Lionel Peabody investigates the feeding habits of giraffes.


In his African expedition in 2004, noted amateur naturalist Lionel Peabody, accompanied as ever by his faithful companion Reggie the honey badger, set off to investigate the dietary habits of giraffes.


Peabody eventually concluded two months that as well as their usual diet of leaves, giraffes were also fond of apples. He could have reached this conclusion on day two of the expedition if he had woken up during his after-dinner nap and caught the young rascal who was nicking his apples.
