We Have a Baby Giraffe at our zoo now!!!!

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
We have a baby giraffe at our zoo now!!! Hehehe, some of ya'll know giraffe's are my absolute favorite animals- so i'm absolutely thrilled to announce the latest addition to the Memphis Zoo!!! Her name is Angela Kate. Her momma, Alta abandoned her at birth, but only a few days after Angela Kate was born, one of the other giraffes, Marilyn, gave birth to a still born and was grieving- so they put Angela Kate with Marilyn and now all is good . Angela Kate is 12 days old now and absolutely adorable!!!!! (I am soooo close to the giraffe's at the Memphis Zoo because I used to volunteer there in the summers and help clean the giraffe run.)



here is the link to this amazing little girl's story!!

Oh, have I got the picture for you! I'll try to post it tomorrow . I saw it in a couple of places, one being my infertility doc's office, and I just had to find one! I think you'll really like it- It's in my daughter's room . Then again, if you like giraffes as much as my daughter , you may already have it!

Yup our panda bears are soo cute! YaYa and LeLe are always fun to visit.I've seen them 12 times

The new polar bear exhibit is awesome too- the northwest passage- they're actually going to be adding on to the memphis zoo in the upcomming future and will be creating new habitats/exhibits for our animals and expand quite a bit I can't wait

here's the link to the zoohttp://www.memphiszoo.org/home.aspx?pid=1

Marilyn is a very sweet girl- i've had the opportunity to work near her when I volunteered a while back cleaning the giraffe run. (giraffe poo is no fun ) but getting to see the giraffe's every day is! (i wasn't allowed around them when they were out as they are wild animals and the zoo is liable for the volunteers- but I did get to see them when we put them in a seperate part of the run while we cleaned. They're such beautiful animals.
