Cheyenne Mountain Zoo giraffe expected to give birth within 2 months
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- A 10-year-old giraffe at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is pregnant and expected to give birth within two months, officials said Tuesday. Various blood tests, behavioral indicators and examinations by experts confirmed the reticulated giraffe is about 13 1/2 months pregnant. “Msitu has given birth to two healthy calves, so we are cautiously optimistic about the viability of this calf," said Jason Bredahl, the African Rift Valley animal care manager at the zoo.
