Video: Baby giraffe born just in time for mother's day


Zookeepers are welcoming a new baby giraffe at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo after mum Savannah gave birth just in time for Mother’s Day. Fourth-time mum Savannah kept zookeepers guessing for weeks after her expected due-date, finally giving birth to a female calf on Wednesday 24 February. Keepers named her Nuru, the Swahili word for light.
