Male giraffe comes into world in Opole Zoo

On Monday night, a young male giraffe was born in Opole Zoo, southern Poland.

The calf is feeling fine. Visitors to the facility will be able to see the newborn in a few weeks time.

This male is the 12th giraffe born in Opole Zoo. It has not been named yet, and those who may influence the choice of name will be the inhabitants of the city.

Breeding giraffes in Opole Zoo started in 1999, and the first one was born a year later.
