Another in the scary-faces series. See here and here.

Even giraffes need to clean the teeth after a good meal. Shot at San Diego zoo. Some contrast and sharpness added.

Almost comes at you out of the picture, nicely caught in the act!
Light seems almost high-noon (difficult to change ad hoc...), which leaves lage part of the face on the shadow side. Difficult conditions to shoot and still all the details are there, in the highlights as well as in the shadows. May have been even better with the ears and "horns" not clipped off (though the larger crop may take away the "Out of bounds" character, don't know ...). Anyway, well done!

Nice details, despite it is not a complete head.
