Today Pafos Zoo welcomed the arrival of our first baby giraffe here at the Zoo and the first in Cyprus.
As many of our regular visitors know we have been awaiting the arrival of a baby giraffe for the last 15 months and in the early hours of this morning the wait was our. The new baby girl arrived at around 03:30 and she took her first step nearly exactly 1 hour later.
Both mum and baby are doing very well but are being kept inside as not to upset them. This is Eleni’s first child and she has been an amazing mother not leaving the baby’s side all day.
You can still she Achilles strolling around his enclosure and we hope that mum and child will join him in the next few days.
Here are few pictures but more pictures and videos will follows shortly.
