Many happy returns, Mia!

There was a sweet surprise in store for Rothschild’s giraffe Mia today – extra sugar beet to mark her eleventh birthday.


The birthday girl enjoyed her celebration treat from Ungulates Keeper Adam Wrench who was first to wish her many happy returns.

He said: “Mia is very popular with our visitors and adopters and was more than happy to share her treat with her Rothschild’s giraffe family including one-year-old son Kito, male Kubwa and female Josie.

“We like to make a fuss of her on her big day but as the largest of our females, at just under 17ft, she’s quite used to living the high life!”

Don’t forget to say happy birthday to Mia when you visit today!
