I went to Zoo Miami yesterday and while enjoying ‘my babies’ I ventured over to see the newest baby, Titan – he is a 6 foot tall 130 lb. giraffe…not big? How bout if I told you those were his measurements AT BIRTH — yes, the female in this video is the mother of Titan, she also gave birth to Marlee just a few months ago. After watching this gentleman try to ‘court’ Kita… I secretly yelled at him to leave her alone .. she has given birth twice in the past 4 months and probably wants her alone time… I spoke with a friend who is a keeper at Zoo Miami and she said that Kita in fact WANTS it, that giraffes go through a postpartum breeding period where they feel that they need to be doing it again. The animal kingdom is CRAY.
Here are a few more pictures from yesterdays much needed Zoo visit:
