Auckland Zoo's only female giraffe Rukiya is pregnant! It has been kept quiet until recently when an update was sent out to FOTZ members. She is due within the next couple of months I think. Father would be of course the zoo's only other giraffe Zabulu. Both of Rukiya's previous calves Forrest and the unnamed calf that died shortly after birth were both male. All fingers are crossed for a female this time! If anyone has anymore info about Rukiya's pregnancy (ie. due date) I would love to hear it. Cant wait to have a new little (well not really) baby running around the pridelands. Also very soon (if not already) to be part of the Giraffe/Zebra/Ostrich side of the pridelands are two new female ostriches to join Fluffy Auckland's lone male ostrich.
