    Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens welcomes a baby female giraffe

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens welcomed a newborn Reticulated giraffe on Saturday, May 21. The baby female weighed 145 pounds and measured a lanky 5-foot-11.

    This was the 38th giraffe calf born at the Zoo, a spokesperson for the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens said. The calf's mom, Luna, has already had two baby giraffes and the father, Duke, has fathered 14 other babies.

    “Luna is a great mom," said the zoo's mammal keeper LeShea Upchurch. "She is protective of her calf and the two spend a lot of time napping and nursing. We are all excited to see her grow and especially to introduce her to the rest of the herd.”
