Found this cute brain teaser from a website (http://mesosyn.com/), though the original is a Martin Gardner puzzle that appeared in New York Times.

Puzzle 56: Toothpick Giraffe

Five toothpicks form the giraffe shown above. Change the position of just one pick and leave the giraffe in exactly the same form as before. The re-formed animal may alter its orientation or be mirror reversed but must have its pattern unchanged.

As always, please send your answers directly to me at alokgoyal_2001@yahoo.com. If you like the puzzle, please share it with others. If you have interesting puzzles to share, please send them to me at my e-mail given above.

Happy moving the Giraffe!
