Sacramento Zoo welcomes baby mongoose lemur and flamingo chick; Shani the giraffe is pregnant

The Sacramento Zoo said it recently welcomed a baby mongoose lemur and is expecting a giraffe later this summer. The mongoose lemur, believed to be male, was born to parents Dahlia and Elmo on July 3. Animals are in critical danger. The zoo baby is expected to be weaned after about 135 days. Meanwhile, Shani the giraffe is expected to give birth in late summer. This will be the 21st calf born at the zoo since 1964. The zoo’s giraffe herd includes male Masai Chifu giraffe Shani, her niece Amira and her daughter Glory. “If the calf is female, it will stay with its herd,” the zoo said in a news release. “If the calf is male, it will move to a different herd after two years, reflecting a normal family cycle.” The zoo also announced that a healthy baby flamingo hatched on July 4. He is the fifth chick hatched by his parents.
