Rare baby giraffe born at zoo in Cumbria
A very rare giraffe has been born at the South Lakes Wild Animal Park in Cumbria.
A giraffe has been born at the South Lakes Wild Animal Park in Cumbria. The zoo, near Dalton-in-Furness, says the newborn is the first West African Giraffe to be born in the UK.
It's one of the rarest animals on the planet - with only a few in captivity and no more than 450 in the wild in Niger.
...and it's a girl!
Names are now being chosen for the baby giraffe. For the record, we like Georgina the giraffe!
