It’s Double Trouble at the Global Wildlife Center!

It’s now a case of double trouble at the Global Wildlife Center after Zira gave birth to her 5th baby on the 900 acre preserve on July 25th at 6:14p.m. Zira’s baby boy came just fourteen days after her mother Kameel gave birth to a baby girl! He is a big one, weighing approximately 150lbs and standing over six feet tall. The baby duo has been spotted getting to know each other and their new family.

 

Giraffes are born after a 15 month gestation period. The mother giraffe gives birth standing up and the baby calf falls approximately six feet to the ground when it’s born.
