Updates from the Giraffe House

Young Sampson was interested in his new half-sister, Zuri, the moment she was born! Since then, the two have spent time interacting between the mesh in the giraffe house.

We can’t wait for the weather to warm up a little more, so the herd can spend some time outside in the yard. Zuri and Sampson will be so much fun to watch running around!

Sampson and Zuri are half-siblings. Sampson was born in October to mom A.J. and father, Moke. Moke also sired Zuri who was born in February to mom Agnes.
