It's a boy!
The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo welcomed it's newest addition to the giraffe family. The new male calf was born at 1:08 p.m. on Sunday, January 20, and mother and newborn are both doing well.
The calf is 11-year-old Msichana's second and first to be sired by the Zoo's five-year-old bull giraffe, Khalid.
Following Cheyenne Mountain Zoo tradition, the male calf will be named after he is 30 days old.
