New Giraffe Arrives at Greenville Zoo

 GREENVILLE - A unique delivery to Greenville all the way from Virginia.

The Special Memories Zoo welcomed a brand new baby giraffe to their family today. This calf is one of only two sets of twin giraffes in the country. Zookeepers say he is adjusting well to his new home.

"He is enjoying the place. He likes all the keepers, he likes to give lots of kisses, he likes to try and eat our clothes. We're spending lots of time with him especially since he just got here," says Head Zookeeper Gretchen Crowe.

A female giraffe is coming to the zoo next year to be a companion for today's arrival.
