New Masai Giraffe Arrives at the Sacramento Zoo
Will be Introduced to the Public in Mid-May

The Sacramento Zoo welcomed their newest resident last Friday evening. “Chifu,” a male Masai giraffe, stands about 10 feet tall and is just over one year old. As with all new animals that arrive at the Zoo, he will be in an off-exhibit area for 30 days prior to being introduced to the new Tall Wonders habitat and the Zoo’s three female giraffes.

Stay tuned for updates on Chifu; he should be on exhibit and greeting Zoo visitors in mid-May
