12 Sep A baby giraffa!
We announce the birth of a new member of the Girafe family! This is a “small” female born June 26, 1.60m at birth! This is the second child of Hadiza, 9 years old. In this species, the pregnancy is long: 14 months! The farrowing goes on standing, and after the “landing”, the mother licks and stimulates her baby to get on his big feet and suckle. A giraffe uses his mother’s milk for 9 to 12 months, drinking up to 12 liters a day!
