Makena the Giraffe at Indianapolis Zoo

Makena the Giraffe at Indianapolis Zoo

Our giraffe mom Takasa just gave birth Feb. 11 to her 7th calf  a girl named Makena. Standing 6 ft tall, this "little" newcomer is full of spirit & curiosity. She's been exploring her surroundings inside the giraffe barn, where she & the rest of our herd will stay throughout the winter.And we can't wait for you to meet her in the spring!

Show your love to her:
