7 days to go. . .


There’s only seven days to go until Christmas, but there’s early celebrations in the giraffe paddock as it’s Josie’s birthday!

DZG’s youngest female Rothschild’s giraffe is six today and Keeper, Gemma Worboys, delivered some extra crunchy leaves for the birthday girl to enjoy throughout her special day.

Ungulates staff make sure Kubwa, Mia, Josie and Kito are still able to tuck into their favourite leafy treats, even when the site’s trees are bare, by storing cut branches and leaves in airtight containers which keeps them crisp and fresh throughout the winter months.

Join Presenters for the daily giraffe talk outside the paddock at 12.45pm, where they’ll be wishing her many happy returns!
