Baby Giraffe Born at SW Missouri Zoo
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - There's a new attraction at a southwest Missouri zoo.
Officials at Dickerson Park Zoo in Springfield say a male giraffe was born Tuesday in the zoo's exhibit yard as visitors and zookeepers watched.
The giraffe is the sixth baby born to Kamili the giraffe, who
will be 12 years old in August.
The zoo says it will allow the public to participate in the
naming of the new baby giraffe.
