OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma City Zoo has announced the birth of a male giraffe.
The zoo said Tuesday that the giraffe calf was born Monday to a 16-year-old female named Ellie and stands more than five feet tall.
The calf’s father, Bogy, died in October 2015. The average gestation period for a giraffe is 15 months.
The zoo did not announce a name for the giraffe calf, but said he can sometimes be seen in the giraffe yard from mid-morning through early afternoon.
