Masai Giraffe


Meet Maxwell! On Sunday, September 30, at 11:29 pm, mom Makali gave birth to a baby boy giraffe. He weighed in at 135 pounds and already stands 5 feet, 5 inches tall. A generous, long-time KCZoo donor stepped forward to name him.  Right now, this adorable new addition is bonding with his mom behind the scenes and won’t be outdoors until temperatures permit. In the meantime, enjoy this look inside our giraffe barn. While this live feed will be available 24 hours a day, the barn is dark in the evening and overnight, so we suggest tuning in during daytime hours for the best views.
