New Giraffe Born in Zoo Prague

giraffes multiply in zoo prague

In the ‘African house’ a new baby giraffe was born, which makes the total number of giraffes born in Prague Zoo: sixty!. The youngster is a girl, was born on 17th November, is very active and can be seen since this weekend together with the rest of her pack.

Zoo celebrated the respectable number by a baptism ceremony of a giraffe boy Faust. The name was given by Milan Steindler, the dean of the 1st medical faculty of Tomas Zima. Faust truly is a hellish name, in spite of the blond baby giraffe doesn’t really show a link to hell.

There is no winter dormancy in Prague Zoo, giraffes are busy – they have increased their numbers of ten baby giraffes in the past two years! At the present moment, it is possible to see 17 Rothschild giraffes in two packs, both led by alpha males there.
