This is the 48th calf born there. The zoo says both baby and mom, Jhasmin, are doing well. This is Jhasmin’s second calf. Her first, Adia, also resides at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.

The zoo says in order to stimulate the mother-calf bond, Jhasmin and the newborn giraffe will be off-exhibit for now; the veterinary team will monitor both the health of the calf and the development of the mom-calf bond to determine when guests can meet them.
