After a weekend of mother-and-child bonding, a male calf born to 14-year-old Mia made his debut Monday, three days after the 181-pound giraffe’s birth, the zoo announced in a news release. He was the 54th giraffe born at the Miami zoo.
It didn’t take long for the 55th baby giraffe to make an entrance. On Monday, 6-year-old Zuri gave birth to a female calf weighing 119 pounds, zoo officials said. Zuri and the calf are expected to rejoin the herd as early as Wednesday.
