It was a bittersweet start to 2017, with the arrival of extremely rare twin giraffe calves and only one surviving. In this week’s Zoo Tales, Pridelands team leader Nat Sullivan talks about the arrival of the twins, and why it has been such an emotional and physically exhausting experience, but also one of the most privileged of her career.

I started crying and knew that I could not watch this because I would be so sad for days. Thank you for caring and trying to help. the little one knew that he was loved during the short time he was here.
Diana Hoopingarner
Thank you for sharing this story with us. It is heartbreaking. No matter how hard we try, the decision is not always ours. We love passionately, and that must be enough. To know that they were loved for whatever time we are blessed to have them with us...is the best we have.
S Oakley
OMG, so sorry. OMG. Really ...this made me sad. But God Bless your Team though. Blessings to you all. I Love Giraffes.
Anthony Stark
Oh my gosh I do not cry easily anymore...but the tears flowed at this story....so sad.
Carol Salsbury
What a painful thing my heart goes out to the caregivers.
Janeil Nold
At least they gave the boy a chance. It's hard for an animal like that to care for twins because it's so incredibly rare. I'm glad the girl is doing well despite being so little. I'm sure she'll be as big and strong as her mom one day!
Carrie Hittel
Oh my goodness. That's heartbreaking. I'm crying, too. :*(
Kristen Greger

wow, I was not expecting that at all! So sad and it takes special people to be zookeepers. Really special. Ones that have a calling on their lives to take care of animals. Amazing to watch this and so sad at the same time. :(

emily mikkelsen
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.

Cindy Narigon
Wow this was sad. Cute babies but I didn't expect to cry.

Mihalko Lyamin
You are all so amazing. I cried over the baby boy, but you did the right thing. He had so much love.
Wyndham Crest
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.
