With all of the panda sadness this week, I am pleased to lift your spirits by reminding you of the new-born baby giraffe at the Louisville Zoo. The "Lil' Slugger" is exactly 2 weeks old today!!
Fun [crazy] fact: Mother giraffes give birth while standing and the young fall five to six feet upon delivery. Offspring are usually 6-feet tall at birth.
