6 feet tall, weighing in at approx. 140 pounds and cute as a (rather largish) button: Sofie, the baby giraffe at the Los Angeles Zoo.
Born on April 22, 2013, Sofie has only been on exhibit for a couple of weeks; and yes, even at 6 feet she is quite tiny, compared to her parents. But she’ll get there!
They’re just sleeping.
One day they will be on the road again, perfectly restored and stunning in their finned splendor.

…and it does not matter at all that I took this photo already on 2/18/2013…
Two tiny young ones in the nest and the mother bird is kept busy feeding and protecting the brood. And yes, the “baby daddies” do not help. Harrumph.
That’s why notes like this pop up: “Do not disturb.” Signed: “The Cat”
I wonder what’s next…
Bon appetit, little one. Enjoy!
There will be no repeats.
