Night Safari Gets New Baby Giraffe On Chinese New Year

Recommended Posts

CHIANG MAI NIGHT SAFARI GETS NEW BABY GIRAFFE ON CHINESE NEW YEAR

Chiang Mai Night Safari has received a baby giraffe as a newcomer over the Chinese New Year.

A female baby giraffe of a rare strain was born yesterday (Jan. 29th) after as many as 468 days of pregnancy by Namphueng (น้ำผึ้ง), the mother giraffe. The newcomer has been given a Chinese name that meant Chinese New Year, as she was born on the date and is considered a much-appreciated Chinese New Year's present for the night safari.

Over this period, zoo officials will help the mother care for the baby giraffe until the milk-feeding period is over. They will also be aiding her to walk, in order to prepare the newcomer to greet visitors.

You'd think they'd put some soi dogs in their empty cages/enclosures, as this is the year of the dog.

I caught a really pretty snake in the garden today. It's brown and yellow, has a forked tongue and scales, and I have it in the maid's washing bucket. I wonder if they would like that for their safari? :o:D
