Philadelphia Zoo welcomes baby giraffe named Beau

0

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Zoo has welcomed a baby giraffe.

Zoo officials announced Tuesday that Beau was born June 10 to parents Stella and Gus. Beau stands 5-foot-7-inches and weighs an estimated 125 pounds.

Beau has a 7-year-old sister Abigail. The four are the only giraffes at the zoo.

Zoo officials say Beau will be separated from his father, Gus, for a lengthy period of time, as male giraffes do not care for newborns.

Both Beau and his mother are available for public viewing at the zoo's Africa Plains exhibit.
