It's a baby girl! San Francisco Zoo resident giraffe, Gezi, gave birth to this lil one on Monday morning. The new arrival provided quite a shock to zookeepers who found her when they arrived at 8 a.m., but predict her actual birth fell between 3 and 6 a.m.
I learned I wasn't the only one who loves the world's tallest land animal, and I can't wait to stop by and check her out in person. At last update, the unnamed lass can be seen outside during the sunny days we've been having lately. She's being monitored to make sure she starts nursing, if not, they'll have to resort to bottle feeding. I can't wait 'til the 150-pound calf gets a cute name — any suggestions?
