Even Baby Giraffes Are Allowed A Cake On Their Birthday

Samuel Reason | April 27th, 2018

Just one year ago millions of people were on the edge of their seat, all fixated on an unlikely hero – a new baby giraffe. The heavily pregnant mother giraffe called April was slowly trotting around her zoo and there was a great excitement in the air for the birth of her baby.

On April 15th, the baby a male arrived in the morning, born at 9:53 am local time. The birth was conveyed to millions of people as it was streamed live from their home in the Animal Adventure Park (AAP) in Harpursville, New York.

The baby giraffe was named Tajiri which means Hope and Confidence in Swahili and just recently celebrated his first birthday. Once again the AAP rose to the occasion and shared the celebrations live via streaming. The event was watched by Tajiri’s worldwide fan base and everyone joined the festivities via the use of the Giraffe’s Cam.

Tajiri still shares an enclosure with his mother, and the father is close by though he is not involved in raising the young giraffe. A local bakery provided lovely snacks for all the humans and then a special meal was prepared for the giraffes. A meal of lettuce and carrots – just what giraffes love! Tajiri is actually now about 10 feet tall, but still nursing from his mother. This according to the APP will stop shortly though and he will move on to completely eating solid foods. Once fully weaned though it will be time for Tajiri to be separated from his mother, so he will have to spread his wings and find a new home.

But what birthday is complete without a cake?

An amazing cake was baked made especially for the baby, cauliflower and carrots were used as frosting and some superb display of giraffe chow pellets made it really look like a birthday cake. At Least we know this baby giraffe will not have any teeth decay from sugar.
