And to think tonight was the night I opted for popcorn! I didn't realize they have black tongues until I was watching a show about them on public TV.

They also can't announce their presence since their vocal cords are so long that they can't make sounds (some make a small mooing sound at birth, but that's it).

That has happened to me! My table wasn't set so beautifully though. We were staying in a chalet in Botswana and a giraffe nicked my salad off the table. We also woke up one morning to find the monkeys drinking our beers lol!
