New baby giraffe at the Metro Richmond Zoo
The Metro Richmond Zoo has a new baby giraffe, born Aug. 2 to proud giraffe parents, Iris and Wakati.
The baby is currently unnamed, but he's on view in a small habitat at the Chesterfield zoo, along with mom Iris, who (like all giraffes) had a 15-month pregnancy.
- Baby G-money, as we're calling him, joins other recent zoo babies, baby hippo Petunia and baby orangutan Taavi.
The Metro Richmond Zoo is open Monday-Saturday, 9:30am-5pm. Admission is $17.95 for kids and $23.95 for adults.
