Most babies measuring 5ft 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 ....
Her eyes are just beautiful!!
HUMMMMM..... I See
You're As Tall As Me!!
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 5ft tall.
Tim Rowland's, 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'.
'Zat For ME?!!?!?!

A Lil' Smooch
Never Hurts Either!!!!
I Know, I'm A Perrrty Girl!!
