Santa Barbara Zoo News!

Welcome, Dane and Sunshine!
CA 93103

During the month of April, Audrey and Betty Lou, two of our Masai giraffes, gave birth! On the 18th, Audrey gave birth to Dane, who is now 6'3" and weighs 156 lbs! Ten days later Betty Lou gave birth to Sunshine, at 6'0" and weighing 133 lbs. (All of the giraffes in our herd have been named by the Dreier Family). Both giraffe calves are doing well and have been nursing, gaining weight, and have been romping around with each other in the giraffe yard. Dane and Sunshine are mostly on exhibit each day from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.. 

Help us welcome Dane and Sunshine! Become a Foster Feeder sponsor of the giraffe herd! A tax-deductible donation of $50 helps with the cost of feeding Dane, Sunshine, and the rest of the herd. For more information, visit our Foster Feeder Page.
