But what the heck, he's kind of at a disadvantage since he's a warm weather animal so being born so early in the season for Denver, I guess he was born during a blizzard - maybe some mylot people in the area can post some new pix of the baby! http://cbs4denver.com/local/Denver.Zoo.baby.2.975460.html

Just watching that weather report out of Denver made me cold. Kind of makes me glad I never made it to mile high after all. The baby giraffe was cute, but I have a hard time thinking baby for something that's over 6 ft tall.

Definitely unusual for a Giraffe to be born in that weather I would think but he doesn't seem to be suffering any cos of it - in fact I would say he is looking very healthy indeed! xxx

I guess you don't understand, giraffes are African savanna animals - where it is mostly pretty warm to very hot. Denver is a mile high and in March still pretty cold. The area is know more for skiing than giraffes....

And named after one of my favorite ice cream treats! Probably because he was born during one...

I'm "Tree-mendously" fond of giraffes - only around these parts we call them "trees" because that's what I called them as a child.
