ABC Wed letter Z


I love the zoo, mainly because I grew up without one.  In a rare occurrence, twin giraffes were born at Auckland Zoo on 3 Jan, though sadly one calf had to be put down. According to Auckland Zoo, only about 30 cases of giraffe twins have been reported worldwide. Here is 7-year-old giraffe mum Kiraka with her new female calf.

I like the chilled out hippo.

I went to the zoo all the time as a kid. what they allowed then, with small encloosures, would never be allowed now, and rightly so.
