Arrival of baby giraffe makes for a Merry Christmas at Yorkshire Zoo

Flamingo Land Resort, a zoo in Yorkshire, received a very special Christmas present this year in the form of the birth of an endangered Rothschild’s giraffe calf. The leggy little guy was soon up and on his or her feet. Reportedly there are only a few hundred of this giraffe sub-species left in the wild. Flamingo Land also celebrated the birth of a baby red panda in June, proving their conservation efforts are working.
