Cardiff Zoo to get Petite Lap Giraffes

A bid from Cardiff zoo to get one of the few Petite Lap Giraffes available from Sokoblovsky Farms has finally been confirmed and the zoo is looking forward to taking in its new addition.

The Petite Lap Giraffes have been showcased for some time on the website:

Although slightly poorly translated, the giraffes are said to be " Petite Lap Giraffes are very funny animal that require special care. They need lots of love. Hugs and kisses every day. Otherwise they make tears. "

The giraffes are very small and a full size adult is only 76 centimeters tall, the baby is a mere 15 centimeters tall. 

Conditions in Cardiff have been made to accomodate the giraffes which need very little preperation, "Living conditions: PLG’s love being indoors in filtered air conditioning. If they can listen to music of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov it is dream.

Grooming: a bubble bath once a week with purified water is all they need."

To find out more about the Petite Lap Giraffe please visit the official farm website at where you can also watch them on live video.
