On Monday, April 2nd, at 1:18pm, one of our giraffes, Ginger, gave birth to a healthy female calf. This newborn weighed in at 93 lbs. and stood 5’7” tall. In fact, about an hour after birth, she was standing for the first time! *For now, both Ginger and the newborn are behind the scenes. Stay tuned for more updates!* We have a BIG announcement to share!
