Fort Worth Zoo welcomes giraffe calf

13 Feb

Zoo Baby Giraffe 13

The Fort Worth new has a new family member.  The giraffe calf was born on Jan. 11th, weighing 132 pounds and over 5 feet tall.

Just in time for Valentine’s day, the calf has a heart on its neck.

It is undetermined if the calf will remain at Fort Worth Zoo or if it will be sent to another zoo as part of a species survival plan. In the last 15 years, nine giraffes born in Fort Worth have been moved to other zoos.

Go “like” the Fort Worth Zoo Facebook page where the name will be announced!
