The Phoenix Zoo welcomed a baby girl Masai giraffe, born on Monday, February 7. This is the third calf for mother Sunshine, and the fourth calf sired by father Miguu. The nearly six-foot-tall, 150-pound baby is healthy and sticks extremely close to her mother in the giraffe barn. Sunshine is an incredibly protective mother and Zoo Officials anticipate them to stay off exhibit in their barn, bonding for at least the next few weeks. Sunshine is an eight-year-old Masai giraffe, and arrived to the Zoo in 2014 as recommended by the Masai Giraffe Species Survival Plan in order to breed with Phoenix’s nearly 13-year-old male Masai giraffe, Miguu (pronounced Mee-goo). Miguu came to Phoenix in 2010 from the Los Angeles Zoo.
