Moshi the giraffe calf is our newest zoo baby born this Fall. On October 22, she was born at over 6ft. Moshi is now 7’4″, and is all sorts of curious.

She’s always putting things in her mouth, and she’s especially fond of licking the branches mum and dad eat. While she’s mainly still nursing, this behavior is great practice for when she starts to eat like an older giraffe.
