about the video

Rothschild’s giraffe family welcomed its newest member a day after Christmas i.e. on Monday, 26th December. The new member who belongs to an endangered subspecies, measures 6 feet in height, has not been named yet. This comes as great relief as giraffes are coming close to extinction.”Rothschild’s giraffes are highly endangered and so the arrival of a new calf is a major cause for celebration. It really is the best Christmas gift we could have ever have wished for”, the zoos team manager of giraffes, Sarah Roffe, said.
