A week after its birth, a baby giraffe will make its debut at the Como Zoo. The zoo says the baby female giraffe was born 5-feet-8-inches tall and 130 pounds last Sunday.
We’re the kind of family that makes at least one trek to each of the zoos in the Twin Cities every year. We love both the Minnesota Zoo and Como Zoo, each for different reasons. When we’re in the mood for a more intimate day that involves less time and considerably less walking, we head to Como. And when we’re craving the full-blown, walk until you drop, all day experience, we head to the Minnesota Zoo!
