Your morning adorable: Giraffe calf takes a drink
The Magdeburg Zoo in eastern Germany welcomed a male giraffe calf June 7. Already the little fellow is consuming more than a gallon of milk a day!
Giraffes' gestation period is more than a year (400 to 460 days is normal), so the Magdeburg Zoo has been waiting for this calf for quite some time. At birth, giraffes often stand 6 feet tall!
