Baby Giraffe Shares Exhibit With Family for the First Time

4-week old Kiko the Giraffe will start sharing an exhibit with both of his parents on Monday.

Walter, Kiko’s father and a Masai giraffe, will now share an exhibit with Autumn, Kiko’s mother, and Kiko himself. 

“We are thrilled to have them together just in time for Thanksgiving holiday visitors to the zoo,” says Greenville Zoo Director Jeff Bullock.

Walter had been separated from Kiko for safety reasons and for an opportunity for Kiko and Autumn to bond. 

The Greenville Zoo has also announced that they are expecting another birth of a giraffe sometime in 2014. 

The Greenville Zoo is open from 10 am to 5 pm daily, except Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.  Admission is $7.75 for adults and $4.50 for children.
