      Is this a hybrid or a Reticulated? It doesn't look like a Rothschild's.

      @amur leopard It is a purebred Rothschild's giraffe. Zlín Zoo does not breed others. But it's still a young animal (I think she's two years old?), so it may remind you of a different subspecies. It also reminds me a little of Reticulated giraffe.

      You're right, having looked it up. Young Rothschild's giraffe have blotches that are closer together, presumably so that when the hide is stretched across the larger body in later life it looks more blotchy like an adult Rothschild's.
