CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - A young giraffe at the Clovis zoo has grown 2 inches and is said to be doing fine. Hillcrest Park Zoo assistant director Mark Yannotti tells the Clovis News Journal staffers are working around the clock to keep up with the young giraffe's demanding feeding schedule.
The unnamed baby giraffe was born Jan. 25 and is the zoo's first exotic animal born in captivity.
Zoo staffers are bottle feeding the female giraffe and giving her supplements five times daily.
Because it's been cold, the baby is kept in the infirmary under heat lamps and allowed to exercise in an adjacent, outdoor pen only when temperatures rise above 60 degrees.
