Masai Giraffe Calf Tumbles Into the World
On April 14, Jamala, a 16 year-old Masai Giraffe, gave birth to a calf at Safari West in California. The calf, named Phoenix, was born on the eve of the total lunar eclipse, making the birth all the more unique and exciting for the zoo. He made a happy landing after his first six-foot plunge to the ground, and was standing on those spindly legs just half an hour later.
