A few days ago, Humphrey made his debut on the Kilimanjaro Safari joining his mom and taking his very first steps on the savanna! If you are visiting the safari, you can easily spot him by his unique butterfly-like marking over his right shoulder and the heart shaped marking dotting his coat.

Did you know the different size and color markings on giraffes camouflage them on the savanna and distinguish the different subspecies? For example, Masai giraffes have a lacy-edged spot pattern that resembles oak leaves.

Giraffes for example, are a vulnerable species facing silent extinction in the wild with a population decline of 40% over the past 30 years.
