Animals need to be out in a savannah type zoo with lots of running space.

Thank You, the waiting & the Birth was wonderful~!! I pushed every time she had a contraction~I was exhausted when the Baby came out. What I missed in the video was how long did the baby live? The other question was do Giraffes expel After Bith?

It does look like it need to be larger if they are going to have younger more playful giraffes there that obviously need more space to run and play. But I'm sure the keepers do their best to keep them safe and this sounds like one of those things that no one could have imagined.
I'm a bit put off by his comment about not wanting to put human emotions or behavior (I can't remember his exact words) with the animals which is insulting. Emotion is emotion no matter who is experiencing it. Animals grieve just as humans grieve. Why else would they be looking for changes in the herd? When you see an apple call it an apple and not a red piece of fruit!

If they were roaming free in Africa these giraffes wouldn't have to worry about death from exhibits and walls. Duh! I don't like zoos for this reason. No animal should be caged, it's in-humane.

Horrible. Animal cruelty. There are way too many giraffes in that enclosure. No room for them to run or get up to their high speeds or open territory. Too many trees in the way that they have to dodge and then the water so close to where she is running. But, it's a money maker thing, right? Too costly to give them 1/2 acre or acre to run on without obstacles. Ya should be fined and shut down!

need more space. how cruel to keep so many giraffes in that space. check the disney animal kingdom and learn from them. if you can't provide more space, put them somewhere that would accommodate their needs.
Wide Awake
Too small enclosure!!!!
