July 27, 2011
The Giraffe calf born to Zoo Atlanta's Mona on July 22 has been confirmed to be female. The 3-day-old calf’s sex was confirmed by the Zoo Atlanta Veterinary Team during an initial checkup on July 23. The calf, who appears to be healthy and is nursing normally, will have an opportunity to bond behind-the-scenes with her mother for about two weeks before exploring her African Plains habitat. Stay tuned for exciting details about the calf’s naming and public debut, including her first introduction to big sister Zuri, born to Glenda on July 13, 2010.
