A female Masai giraffe born Saturday, August 27, at the Brevard Zoo is now out on exhibit! Be sure to stop by the giraffe platform on your next visit to the Zoo and meet the new giraffe baby. The new giraffe was born to dad, Raffiki, and mom, Johari. This is the fourth birth for Johari. Other offspring include Melvin, 5, who recently went to the Metro Richmond Zoo this past spring; Stephanie, 3, who now resides at Disney?s Animal Kingdom; and Joey, who turned 1 in March and still resides at the Zoo. Milenna, the Zoo?s other Masai giraffe, gave birth to a male, Rafeano, in April.
