African Rift Valley Babies

TWO giraffe-moms-to-be…

Watch the largest reticulated giraffe herd in any accredited North American zoo (including moms-to-be Muziki and Laikipia) on our two outdoor live Giraffe Cams. These moms-to-be are in a race to produce the 200th giraffe calf in CMZoo history. Both are due late April or early May 2018 and may also be seen on a live Giraffe Birth Cam, coming soon!

Reticulated giraffe calf, “Rae”

– Reticulated giraffe calf female born April 26, 2017 to mother Msitu. Guests may find the calf inside or outside and usually with the herd. Stay tuned to our social media channels for more updates! Visit the press release with photos and video link here.

Slender-tailed meerkat pups

– Four pups born March 6, 2018 to parents Dusty and Kamikaze. The pups love to play and wrestle with each other and mom and dad, and they tend to follow and mimic their movements, as well. Gender confirmation is pending. They are located at the meerkat exhibit in African Rift Valley (right across from the lions), and they have access to both their off-exhibit den and outdoor exhibit.
