      Has this animal been dna tested then?

      As I believe until it is tested it will be listed as a hybrid by the giraffe studbook!!

      I've heard the calf has been tested (not confirmed though), however I personally don't believe this calf has been. According to reports, the calf is pure due to the fact the hybrid males were last mixed with the females in mid 2012. This also makes me think that this calf is hybrid as this is also not confirmed.

      So in that case my eye sight was wrong when I saw the hybrids mixed with the pure ones in very late December 2012,along with the 3 people that I had as witness!!
