    Default Two baby giraffes born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom



    Two male giraffe calves are the newest additions to Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom Resort.

    Bolo was born Oct. 12 weighing in at 153 pounds. He is the second calf for his mother Big Girl, who first birthed a female calf in November 2005. On Oct. 5, the Disney’s Animal Programs team helped to deliver 166-pound calf Bruehler from third-time mother Aibuni. Both calves stand nearly six feet tall and could grow to be as tall as 15 – 18 feet as adults.
    The two calves represent the 13th and 14th giraffes born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom since opening in 1998. Giraffes at Walt Disney World Resort are bred through the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Population Management Plan, which is a consortium of zoos and wildlife parks working together to conserve and breed animals.
    Fun Facts about Giraffes:
    The typical gestation period for a giraffe is approximately 15 months.
    An adult giraffe’s neck alone can measure up to 7-feet, and their tongues can be as long as 18 inches.
    Each giraffe has a unique set of skin markings, similar to a human fingerprint.
    Same as people, giraffes have seven neck vertebrae bones.
