Memphis Zoo was built in 1906. It’s now a roof for 3,500 animals and about 500 species.
Lately, they have celebrated the birth of the baby Somali giraffe – the youngest princess there.
It happened in the early morning of June 7th, when the employees were filled with joy to witness how their beloved giraffe Wandy gave birth to the cutest calf.
The baby girl was given the name Milele which means ”forever” because all of the zoo workers had to wait forever until her birth.
The calf and her mother were examined after the birth and there was no problem with their health.
Milele has a sassy personality and she proves that being a princess is her title. She loves walking around her mom and show her presence.
When Milele was ready to see her family members, she met her dad, sister and brother. She was absolutely happy to see other giraffes around.
Milele and other Somali giraffes live in sanctuaries and zoos because of being extinct. Thanks to breeding programs specialists help them to restore their population so that later they can be sent back to the wild.
These giraffes are famous as the tallest land animals having a maximum height of 18 feet. They are wonderful living beings with the noblest movements and graceful patterns on their bodies.
