Baby giraffe born at Cincinatti Zoo

Tessa, the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden’s four-year-old Maasai giraffe gave birth to her first calf on April 2. The Cincinnati Zoo’s history with giraffe births goes back to 1889 when it became the first zoo in the Western Hemisphere to have a giraffe born in captivity. The last time the Zoo celebrated a giraffe birth was nearly 26 years ago. Source
