According to Duong Thanh Phi, director of the park, the mother giraffe, called Mi, was imported from South Africa in 2008 and experienced a 14-15 month gestation period. Her calf is healthy, measuring 1.9 metres tall and weighing 60-70 kg when it was born.

 

Phi said South African giraffes adapt well to living conditions in Binh Duong, where it is sunny all year round and food is abundant.

 

The Dai Nam zoological park is breeding two pairs of South African giraffes and other wild animals like zebra, hippo, and antelope. It aims to breed these wild animals for exchange with other parks in the country.
