Jacksonville Zoo Sees Baby Boom With Birth Of Giraffe Calf
The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens is celebrating yet another birth this year - this one a giraffe.
The zoo says 13-year-old Luna gave birth to a male calf on Friday, July 2.
The little guy - little being a relative term - weighs 165-pounds, stands 6-feet tall, and appears to be in good health.
Visitors should get to see Luna and her calf this Saturday, July 10.
The zoo has experienced quite a baby boom in recent months - welcoming a western lowland gorilla, a critically endangered cotton-top tamarin, a critically endangered pancake tortoise and numerous penguins, spoonbills, herons, and starlings, among others.
