New Baby Giraffe At Zoo Miami
Zoo Miami’s newest baby giraffe will make its first appearance on exhibit with the rest of the herd! The baby was born on Wednesday, October 30th, to a 6 year old female named, “Mia.” Though this is Mia’s 3rd baby, it is the 46th giraffe born in the history of Zoo Miami. Mia arrived at Zoo Miami from the Dickerson Park Zoo in Missouri in October of 2007. The father’s name is “Fezzik,” a 16 year old male that was born at the St. Louis Zoo and arrived at Zoo Miami in May of 1998. The newborn weighed 152 pounds, stood close to 6 feet tall and was determined to be a male during its neonatal exam last Wednesday. It is yet to be named.
