Cricket was born to mother, Heshimu, and father, Dikembe on 14 April, 2010. She is now running all over the giraffe area at the zoo for all the visitors to see.

 

Fun Facts about Giraffes:

  • Giraffes are the tallest land mammal, at approx. 17 feet tall.
  • Pregnancy for a giraffe is 15 months long.
  • A baby giraffe will double its height in the first two years of life.
  • Like human fingerprints, the markings of a giraffe’s coat are unique to each individual.
CHEERS to the Denver Zoo on the arrival of this BEAUTIFUL addition!
