11/08/13 Cape May Zoo

Posted: November 9, 2013 in Uncategorized

My wife and I headed to the Cape May Zoo hoping to get a glimpse of the new baby giraffe. We got lucky. They only came out near us for a few short minutes, but were very accommodating. The little girl was born on September 2 weighing 150 pounds and stood 6 feet tall. The mom was a seven year old named Joanie, who came from the Bronx Zoo. The dad was a seventeen year old bull from Busch Gardens named Sterling.
