Early on the morning of April 16, a female giraffe was born to 19-year-old mother Dottie at the zoo. Zookeepers already notice she’s more curious than other giraffe calves and likes to look around her exhibit and lick her keepers.
The African Grasslands exhibit is a beautiful new home for wildlife at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo. But the zoo's littlest giraffe, LoLo, wasn't sure she wanted to move into her new neighborhood. The World-Herald's Chris Peters tells how LoLo learned that moving can mean new adventures and new friends. To preview the book and order, visit the OWH Store.
