Two not-so-small bundles of joy arrived at Busch Gardens
earlier this summer. Now, the two baby giraffes
are out in the park for public viewing.
Cupid, a 15 year-old giraffe, welcomed her seventh calf back
on June 11, park officials said. The male calf weighed 188 pounds and was
more than 6 feet tall. Tesa, an 18-year-old giraffe, welcomed her sixth
calf on June 19 -- a female weighing 145 pounds and standing 5-foot-8.
The baby reticulated giraffes are now on the Serengeti Plain
part of the park. The best view is from the Serengeti train or the Edge of
Africa area. Officials also say you can reserve
a spot on the Serengeti Safari tour to get up close with giraffes the other
animals on the plain.
