There’s a mini-baby-boom in the giraffe population at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. On Oct. 12, Bolo was born to second-time mother Big Girl (bothÂ in photo above). A week earlier, Bruehler was born to third-time mother Aibuni.
The newborns are both male and already stand at about 6 feet tall. They could grow up to be between 15 and 18 feet high. The new twosome began nursing right away, Disney officials say, and they are already very feisty. They are the 13th and 14th giraffes born at Animal Kingdom since it opened in 1998.
The theme-park-going public can’t spy Bolo and Bruehler just yet, but they should be out and aboutÂ “in the coming weeks,” a Disney spokesperson says.
“The next important milestone is for the calves to continue the bonding process with their mothers who will teach them important lessons and guide them as they are introduced to the herd in the coming weeks,” says Matt Hohne, animal operations director at Disney’sÂ Animal Kingdom.
