Spotticus the giraffe

Meet the Museum mascot, Spotticus, a giraffe at the Dead Zoo with his own Twitter account. He came to live in Dublin in 2003 and is a Rothchild’s Giraffe, a subspecies of giraffe that is endangered in Africa today. Spotticus has never actually been to Africa, he was born in a wildlife park in the Netherlands. He speaks his own mind and will answer if you tweet him why not tell him about your day at the museum?”
