Memphis Zoo was constructed in 1906. It’s now a roof for 3,500 creatures and roughly 500 kinds.
Lately, they have celebrated the birth of the baby Somali giraffe – the youngest princess there.
That happened in the early morning of June 7th, when the personnel were thrilled with delight to see how their favorite giraffe Wandy gave birth to the prettiest youngster.
The baby girl was given the name Milele, which means “forever,” because all of the zoo workers had to wait forever until her birth.
After the birth, the calf and her mother were examined and found to be healthy.
Milele has a sassy personality and she proves that being a princess is her title. She enjoys circling her mother and making herself known.
Milele met her father, sister, and brother when she was ready to visit them. She was really pleased to see other giraffes nearby.
Milele and other Somali giraffes are extinct and live in sanctuaries and zoos. Specialists assist them in rebuilding their population through breeding programs so that they may subsequently be released back into the wild.
These giraffes, with a maximum height of 18 feet, are renowned for being the tallest terrestrial creatures.
