Go See the Baby Giraffe Before He Grows UP!

The latest edition to the Sacramento Zoo tower of giraffes is a baby boy Masai giraffe. He was born on April 11, 2016 and is growing up quickly. Today was the first day we could get there and we decided to go early to beat the heat. The zoo opens at 9:00 a.m. on weekdays.

By the time we finished touring around we could see the lions sunning themselves and other animals a bit more active.
