DENVER (WDTN) – It’s a baby giraffe – just not the one everyone has been waiting on.
The Denver Zoo welcomed the birth of Dobby, a 5-foot, 73-pound male reticulated giraffe Wednesday morning.
According to the zoo both small figures for a newborn giraffe.
Dobby wasn’t initially nursing so the staff fed the infant and provided critical care in his first hours of life to get him back on track.
According to the Brian Aucone, Denver Zoo Senior Vice President for Animal Care & Conservation, “He’s nursing and we are feeling good about his health.”
