Animals including giraffes -- but only small, young giraffes -- will be kept in pens on board.“We think that God would probably have sent healthy juvenile-sized animals that weren’t fully grown yet, so there would be plenty of room,” said Mr. Zovath, a retired Army lieutenant colonel heading the ark project. “We want to show how Noah would have taken care of them, taken care of waste management, taken care of water needs and food needs."
I hate to be a literalist about it, but seriously, if you somehow accounted for where the termites would live, and how you'd have dinosaurs existing at the same time as people, and if you brought on only a pair of very tiny apatosaurus along with miniatures of all the other dinosaurs, and even if you took the largest estimates for the size of Noah's ark, the critters still wouldn't fit.
