this so sad. I raise goats and I have had quit a few babies be rejected by moms, or have what I call weak baby syndrome. Whatever the cause , it is heart breaking. Someone once said to me, "that while the baby was here it knew it was loved." You all did such a great job. Keep us posted on how the little girl is doing and what is her name.

Bless your hearts you gave him a lot of care and love. I'm sorry he wasn't strong enough. Very heartbreaking. I'm happy the little girl is doing well though. Mama and you all are doing well in making sure she survives.
Thanks Aukland Zookeepers for trying to help male baby giraffe twin. You guys did a great job. Death is always an unfortunate part of your job but animals have a life cycle, too. Good luck with your sweet premie little girl.

aweee heartbreaks for all who were involved in this. I know how it feels to put your heart and soul into trying to help both mom and Babies and then have one not survive. It's impossible to Not get attached to them no matter how hard you try not to.. and I sincerely hope and pray for all involved to find peace and know that you did what you could and that I believe you made the right decision in putting him down as it's the eternal question... Quality of life or Quantity? at least he feels no pain.. thank you for sharing You and your team's adventure,trials, joys, heartbreaks, and every other emotion involved in this event.. it is an experience that we can all feel and learn from as well. so thank you and God Bless you all in your lives and may the whole park/zoo have good luck and amazing blessings throughout the year!
