Paignton Zoo's newest giraffe is a baby girl, keepers have confirmed.
They say the as yet un-named calf is doing well but, because her mother would not feed her, she has been separated from the herd and is being fed from a bottle.
Matthew Webb, Senior Head Keeper of Mammals said:
“She is now feeding very well from keepers and is on 4 feeds a day, consuming up to 8 litres a day. This will increase slightly as she gets bigger, up to a maximum of around 10 or 12 litres a day.”
Zoo staff have yet to decide what to call the youngster.
