Give To The Max Day
Zoogoers are looking to the “Skye” Monday at St. Paul’s Como Park! The zoo introduced the 20-day-old giraffe named Skye to the public, who is the 18th of her kind to be born there in 20 years. Skye weighs 145 pounds and is already 6 feet tall, but she is likely to double in size in her first two years, according to zoo officials. Giraffes can grow as tall as 18 feet.
