    What happened to 'Zoolu' the young male giraffe they got from Paignton Zoo a few years ago. (He had been handraised). Did he die at Twycross?

    Do you know the names/sexes(or background) of the current Twycross giraffes?

    Cormac died at Twycross. He was at Chester for 11 years. Are his kids still there?

    Thanks for the info- last time I went I noticed that he wasn't there so had come to the usual sad conclusion... I believe 'Zoolu' was the only baby that was reared(by hand) from the pair at Paignon Zoo before they died in the giraffe house fire together with their latest calf.:(:(
