The little calf is now 1 day old and this morning all is well. Trying to get a pic of her/him is a bit hard as Autumn moves around she casts a huge shadow over the calf who is sitting down in the middle of the stall but all looks relaxed this morning.

Oh my goodness lots of drama with Autumn and her little one but glad to hear all now seems to be in order, phew !

That was so cute that the little one licked its lips after the feed cheers He/she looks so sweet lying down like that and so lovely to see Autumn finally interacting so lovingly with the baby.

I take there's been no word if it's a little boy or girl ? Not sure how easy it is to tell with Giraffe

Suprise surprise for me, Cam not working at the moment Head Banger

:What: Doogs, honestly we do have problems with these cams don't we?

Not sure if they've said which sex it is - I wonder if WS knows from the blog?

Kiko means Autumns Child in Swahili, he weighed in at 118lbs, and stands between 70 to 80 inches tall.
This is Autumns Child nodding off

Thanks WS. Kiko is a lovely name and what a relief that he is born and looking fit and healthy, it was a long wait.

Thanks for the photos Littlewid, I especially love the last one.

Nice to know the meaning of Kikos name WS, its a great name Very Happy

Just found Paddock cam and although its not Autumn and Kiko out there it is Autumns stall friend, here he/she is outside and also in the stall, no sign just yet of Kiko and Autumn.

That was a lovely clip WS, doesn't Kiko look even more stunning in that video, he also looked quite a confident little giraffe, it was nice to see him and Autumn out and about with Walter looking on. Thanks for letting us know his name earlier WS.
Heres Kiko having a little sit down this morning.

WOW lots of pictures and clips since I've last been on, Thanks so much WS and LW for them all.

So it's a little boy Giraffe :baby1: and just love his name I love you Like a Star @ heaven I love you It's not until you see him standing next to Autumn you realise how little he is, bless. Loved Walter having a peek from next door at his son :) Great this little fella is doing great after a bit of hairy affraid start when Autumn was trying to work out what he was !!!

The locals of Greenville Zoo are delighted to have him and so they should be Very Happy

Your right Doogs, it's lovely they are both doing so well. I have just had a peek in on them and Autumn is on one side of the stall and Kiko is on the other but it would be good pics of either of them. Autumn is standing, maybe feeding and Kiko is sitting down, but it all seems calm Very Happy

I am not sure where Autumn and Kiko are, their stalls are empty but there is the addition of two rubber mats on one of the stalls, not sure what they are there for, they may have just been left there after something or maybe they are for Kiko to lie on, I don't know.

I checked the paddock cam and just caught Walter as he was walking to the top of the picture, he was away for a while then came back just in view, but he stayed at the top of the picture and didn't move, only his tail was blowing in the wind a little, I was willing him down for a snap but he did not oblige, typical man Very Happy

For the last couple of nights there had been no covering on the floor of the two stalls, apart from a pile of mulch in the left had stall, and those two rubber mats in the right hand one. Autumn from what I've seen seems to stay in the one on the right eating, and occasionaly comes through to check on Kiko, who lies down on the floor , but not on the mats in the right hand one, in the same position as your last photo of him LW. Not sure why this is, but will try to check. I think the reason we are not seeing them is because they are outside on public view, but not in the same paddock as Walter

Thanks WS. The Paddock cam doesn't appear to be streaming this morning and I am sure Autumn must be out there as she is not in the stalls. Kiko is sitting on the floor but he is a bit of a blur, he must be having a Sunday snooze, will check the cams later again today.

The paddock cam wont be streaming as its 4hrs behind us there so its early morning. Strange there no sight of Autumn I would'nt have thought she'd be outside yet. They have put some bedding down now next to the rubber mats, these are a couple of pics from last night

I forgot about the time difference WS Embarassed glad they have put some bedding down for Kiko, he may be on that this morning but its a bit blurry to see. Hopefully Autumn will make an appearance soon, I will keep a check out for her. Lovely pics from yesterday WS, thanks.

Well there is funny goings on in the stall today, they seem to have moved in a new species of Giraffe......not one I have seen before.......I need to Google it I think scratch
Autumn seems quite interested though Very Happy




I have been trying to capture Walter as well today but he is also being a little elusive, just managed to get him having a little nibble on the grass

Had another peek in and Autumn and Kiko are outside now.

Great pics LW, nice to see them outside in the paddock. Love the shot of the new Giraffe species, but there's no need to Google it, I've identified it. It's the Lesser Necked Byped species
