Birmingham Zoo Welcomes Baby Giraffe
(2008-07-28)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The Birmingham Zoo is welcoming a new addition.

A reticulated giraffe was born early Monday morning. The baby is nursing and seems to have bonded with its mother, Juno. Both mother and baby are doing well.

Zoo staff have been keeping their distance because of the mother's protective instincts. This is the second baby for Juno, who is almost 8. The father, Morefu, is 23 years old.
