Seattle’s tallest baby – a 1-month-old male giraffe – stood a towering 6 feet tall at birth. He is now 7 feet tall and can be seen in the Woodland Park Zoo’s outdoor corral from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30/3:00 p.m. daily. The calf was born August 6 to 6-year-old Olivia, a first-time mom. The last viable birth of a giraffe at the zoo was in 1997. In addition to the mom and baby is Tufani, Olivia’s 5-year-old sister. Although mom and baby may choose to go in the barn when it is raining, they were all outside in last Friday’s rainstorm, not seeming to mind.
