A Giraffe Called Margaret

What  a beautiful and gentle little soul, just look at those  incredible eyes.

Her  name is Margaret: Her eyes are beautiful.  Most babies measuring 5 ft would be considered big, but newborn giraffe, Margaret, at Chester  Zoo UK is seen as unusually small for her species.

She is one of the smallest giraffes ever born  at Chester Zoo, but pint-sized Margaret will soon be an animal to look up to. Little Margaret, who is the  first female Rothschild giraffe born at the zoo, is being  hand-reared by her dedicated keepers.
The first calf  for six-year-old mum Fay, Margaret, who was born two weeks early, tipped the scales at just 34 kilos (75 lbs) and is a  mere 5 ft tall. Tim Rowland, team leader of the Giraffes section, said: ‘Margaret is one of the smallest  giraffe calves we have ever seen.
Fay isn’t the largest of giraffes and Margaret was also early which might  go some way to explaining her size.  ‘Margaret was  having difficulty suckling so our keeping team are now hand-rearing her.

Thank you for my bottle
