Staff at Paignton are making room for a new arrival after the arrival of this adorable giraffe.
The Rothschild calf was born to mother Janica on Thursday, but after rejecting him, he is now being hand-reared by keepers.
The baby giraffe, who has not yet been named, is already nearly six feet tall and will need to be fed four times a day.
He could need milk for up to nine months.
He has taken milk from us, he is getting the hang of it.
He is separated from the group but can see them all, for the first few days it is important to keep him separate to allow him to bond with the keepers so he feels comfortable enough to feed from them.
As soon as possible he will be reintroduced to the herd so he doesn’t forget he is a giraffe!
His father, Yoda, came from Givskud Zoo in Denmark, and arrived at Paignton in September 2006. Janica came to the zoo from Duvr Kralove Zoo in the Czech Republic.

A rare monkey from an endangered species has been born at Paignton Zoo.
The male cherry-crowned mangabey was born in the early hours of last Sunday, and has been seen spending time with his mother Kibibi, father Yengo and brother Kumba.
His species his native to tropical West Africa, where it lives in large groups of up to 25. Cherry-crowned mangabeys are endangered by deforestation and the bushmeat trade, but also live in protected areas, including the Omo Forest Reserve in Nigeria, where Paignton Zoo supports a conservation project.
Orangutans in Paington Zoo have been treating visitors to an extra special show - by walking a tightrope.

A crocodile at Paignton Zoo found an effective way of resolving the problem when he found somebody sat in his favourite spot.
The West African dwarf crocodile simply sat on top of his companion - a red-eared terrapin.
The photograph captures the quietly-determined tussle as the two battled it out for space under one of the heat lamps.
We have multiple basking spots in the enclosure to prevent competition and allow plenty of choice, so why they decided to climb over each other, I don’t know!
The pair live in the Zoo’s Reptile Tropics exhibit and are usually on good terms.
