Baby giraffe arrives at Dudley Zoo

Staff at Dudley Zoological Gardens are very excited to announce the birth of a female giraffe.

The calf, who stands around 1.8 metres tall, was born on Sunday 22 September to 10 year-old mum, Josie and 18 year-old dad, Kubwa. DZG Assistant Curator Jay Haywood said:

“Everyone at the zoo is delighted with her arrival. She’s been snuggled up to mum in the giraffe house for the past week, but we’re thrilled with her progress.

“She’s very inquisitive and I’m sure she’ll quickly become a firm favourite with our visitors.

Keepers are currently busy thinking of a name for the newborn.
