The young female hit the ground - literally - Sunday, Sept. 23 at 1:18p. Giraffes face up to a 4-foot fall when they're born! The little pile of limbs was immediately cleaned up by mama, 9 year old Kipenzi, and was standing up attempting to nurse within the hour.
"It's very exciting to have any birth here, but especially giraffes," said animal care supervisor Jane Larson. "They're such large animals. It's so fascinating to see this long-legged creature come out of the giraffe's womb then they have such a long drop. It's very exciting - we're thrilled!"
Riley, the father, was sent to the Oregon Zoo a few months ago due to limited space while construction begins for the African Savanna. Riley will return to Utah's Hogle Zoo upon completion of the savanna in the spring of 2014.
Hogle Zoo has displayed giraffes since 1969, and is proud of the history of 16 successful giraffe births over that time period.
Mom and baby are doing great. They've been spending the last week bonding but are ready to greet zoo guests. As of today, Wednesday Oct. 3, both mom and baby are now on exhibit in the giraffe yard, along with two other giraffes.
