October 5, 2008 – A Male Giraffe is Born in Disney’s Animal Kingdom
“The young males, who began nursing successfully soon after birth, are already feisty and very active.”
On October 5, 2008, the Disney Animal Programs team helped deliver a male giraffe calf within Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The giraffe, named Bruehler, was born to mother Aibuni, and weighed 166 pounds. Bruehler is the 13th giraffe born in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and was bred through the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Population Management Plan. Another giraffe was born later that month, and was named Bolo.
