New Baby Giraffe Born at Zoo
The newest arrival the the Great Plains Zoo in Sioux Falls is finally here!
Born Tuesday and weighing in at a whopping 146lbs, he is ready for you to view in the Indoor Giraffe Barn this weekend. He dropped from mama from a height of 5 feet at birth, and the “bouncing” baby is happy and healthy.
The birth comes a year and a day after “Gerald” was born to mother “Libby” last September.
The other side of our story happened when we asked if anyone had a picture of the new giraffe. This is the newest picture we could have received! The photo shows the actual birth. It came from Kristi M. who sent it to us with this note:
Explain this one to your kids!”
Yep. Can’t Yep…can’t un-see that.
