Chester Zoo Unveils New Baby Giraffe

My Name Is Margaret …..

1912

Her eyes are beautiful.  Most babies measuring 5 feet would be considered big, but newborn giraffe, Margaret, at Chester Zoo, UK is seen as unusually small for her species.   She is one of the smallest giraffes ever born at Chester Zoo, but pint-sized Margaret will soon be an animal to look up to.

Little  Margaret, who is the first female Rothschild giraffe born at the zoo, is being hand-reared by her dedicated keepers. The first calf for  six-year-old mum Fay, Margaret, who was born two weeks early, tipped the scales at just 34 kilos (75 lbs) and is a mere 5 ft tall.

Tim  Rowland’s, team leader of the Giraffes section, said: ‘Margaret is one  of the smallest giraffe calves we have ever seen.  Fay isn’t the largest of giraffes and Margaret was also early which might go some way  to explaining her size.  ‘Margaret was having difficulty suckling  so our keeping team are now hand-rearing her.
