Baby giraffe makes first public appearance
The Khao Kheow Open Zoo in Chon Buri on Thursday introduced a baby giraffe born at the zoo last week to the public.
Atthaporn Sriheran, director of the zoo, said the baby was born on Friday to Bow, a 10-year-old giraffe, and her 15-year-old mate, Jay.
Atthaporn said the baby is Bow’s first, and added that the baby is healthy and able to walk alongside its mother and father in its first public appearance.
The director urged children to visit the baby giraffe and said a competition to name the zoo’s latest member would soon be launched.
