PHOTO NEWS RELEASE

Taking a Long View

 
     A baby giraffe peeks out over the backs of the adults in her herd during her first day with the rest of the herd at the San Diego Zoo.  The youngster, who was born at the Zoo on Thursday, May 9, had been in a restricted “playpen” area of the habitat until animal care staff felt she was old enough to venture out into the larger space.
 
     Masai giraffes are native to Africa and are threatened in some areas.  Giraffes are about six feet tall at birth.
