Baby Ga Ga!
The newest member of the Johnston Zoo is Baby Ga Ga!
Baby Ga Ga is a Somalian giraffe. The name search for the new baby giraffe took place during it’s mother’s, “ Bee”, pregnancy of 15 months.
Baby Ga Ga is just a few days old and it’s ossicones are standing up. There has been much excitement at the zoo behind the birth of the baby giraffe. The grand reveal of the new baby is set for next week with many groups scheduling a visit in hopes to see the baby.
Dr. Weeks comes in to observe the mother and new calf. It looks like mother and baby are doing just fine. Dr, Week is the Chief Veterinarian at the Johnston Zoo and oversees the division that provides all veterinary medical care for the Zoo’s animal collection... He also has another job that we will tell you about later.
He just loves animals! He went to see The Day of the Dolphin as a child and it was all over for him. He knew what he wanted to do!
Baby Ga Ga is curious about Dr. Weeks and wants to give him a sniff.
Bee bellows at her calf and he comes back to stand by her side.
Come on girl! That’s right, have a taste! Baby Ga Ga uses this opportunity to get a sniff.
Please comeback to see Ga Ga welcomed by the public.
Thanks for looking!
