Question about English (US)

As I was reading "Elmwood Park Zoo" by Stan Huskey, I came across the sentence below.

For a small fee, visitors can purchase lettuce, and the giraffes will come to them, allowing visitors to touch them and pet them as the reach for the roughage.

The "as the reach for" part seems odd to me, is it a misprint?
