Topeka Zoo welcomes newborn giraffe; another expected soon

The Associated Press and The Topeka Capital-Journal - July 12, 2018 9:58 am

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – The Topeka Zoo is welcoming a newborn giraffe.

Abi, one of two pregnant giraffes at the zoo, gave birth Wednesday to a baby named Konza.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the calf has been expected since late June when staff first thought Abi could go into labor.

Zoo officials announced in March that Abi, who is 7, and 8-year-old Hope were pregnant. The calves were conceived with Sgt. Peppers, who was transferred to Topeka from Oklahoma City in 2013.

Hope is expected to give birth within a month.

Hope was born at the Topeka Zoo in 2010. Abi arrived in Topeka in 2015 from the Albuquerque, New Mexico, BioPark Zoo
