Seneca Park Zoo celebrates birth of second giraffe this year



Rochester, New York – Seneca Park Zoo is seeing a bit of a baby boom.

On Tuesday, another Masai giraffe calf was born, that is the second this year.

According to Monroe County Executive Adam Bello and zoo Director Steve Lacy, the baby is faring well, but details of the new calf, like name and gender, haven’t been released.

The calf was born to Kipenzi. It’s her first.

Iggy gave birth to Olmsted, a male calf, on April 29, whose name was inspired by a famed park-designed Frederick Law Olmsted, whose 200th birthday is this year.
