name that giraffe

At only one-month-old, ZSL Whipsnade Zoo’s newest arrival is already standing tall – at almost six feet! The reticulated giraffe, a baby boy, was born to proud first-time parents Ijuma and Uno at 7am on September 30, taking his first wobbly steps just hours after birth. The leggy newcomer is expected to grow a staggering inch every day in his first year – equalling an extra four feet in height. Keepers at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo are calling on the public to help them name the baby giraffe, voting closes on November 16.

The leggy newcomer is expected to grow a staggering inch every day in his first year – equalling an extra four feet in height. Keeper, Louise Jakobsen, said: “The new arrival is already showing dad’s calmness and mum’s inquisitive nature. He’s very confident on his long legs now - after starting off mirroring the actions of his keepers, he soon began galloping around the paddock. Although he will suckle for around a year, he’s begun nibbling on leaves which we’ve put at his height so he can easily tug on them.” Whipsnade’s new calf is extra special because when 10-year-old Uno - which means number one - arrived at Whipsnade last year as the Zoo’s breeding male, he was slightly smaller and less muscular than the average male. But what he lacked in stature, he made up for in spirit and soon learned to ‘walk tall’ to gain the attention of the females in the paddock. Louise added: “It’s Uno’s first baby and he has been very curious about the new arrival, showing a lot of interest in him. We keep spotting him peering over to get a better look. “Ijuma is also doing a brilliant job as a first-time mum. She’s been showing excellent maternal instincts towards her baby and is gaining in confidence all the time.”

Keeper, Louise Jakobsen, said: “The new arrival is already showing dad’s calmness and mum’s inquisitive nature. He’s very confident on his long legs now - after starting off mirroring the actions of his keepers, he soon began galloping around the paddock. Although he will suckle for around a year, he’s begun nibbling on leaves which we’ve put at his height so he can easily tug on them.” Whipsnade’s new calf is extra special because when 10-year-old Uno - which means number one - arrived at Whipsnade last year as the Zoo’s breeding male, he was slightly smaller and less muscular than the average male. But what he lacked in stature, he made up for in spirit and soon learned to ‘walk tall’ to gain the attention of the females in the paddock. Louise added: “It’s Uno’s first baby and he has been very curious about the new arrival, showing a lot of interest in him. We keep spotting him peering over to get a better look. “Ijuma is also doing a brilliant job as a first-time mum. She’s been showing excellent maternal instincts towards her baby and is gaining in confidence all the time.”

A new video and pictures were released yesterday by the San Diego Zoo shows a baby panda learning how to walk. Blinking and squeaking, the adorable panda cub pushes itself up slowly, managing a step or two before tumbling over sleepily. The cub's first steps were recorded during the yet unnamed bear's ninth check-up at the zoo, where his measurements and weight were recorded.

A tiny terrier the size of a coke can is vying to be named the world's smallest dog. Little Meysi is 7cm tall, 12cm long and weighs just 150g - about the same as a hamster. She was so small at birth her owner mistook her for a bit of placenta and nearly threw it in the bin before noticing it moving.

There is outrage in Seattle after a diver plucked a live giant octopus from the ocean and threw it in the back of his truck. These photos were taken as angry fellow divers confronted the man - identified as 20-year-old Dylan Mayer - after he and a pal emerged from the water carrying the 30lb female creature which he had dragged from its home. He shrugged off their complaints and drove away, later saying he killed the octopus and ate it as part of a friend's art project. Mayer has been bombarded with hate mail for the controversial act, which has caused an uproar even though hunting octopuses is legal in the state of Washington.

The doors were closed after election officials were overwhelmed by the size of the crowd Sunday. With limited staff and one printer, election officials decided to shut down the main office, doors were reopened after voters protested and demanded to exercise their right to vote.

  • FILE - This Oct. 29, 2012 file photo shows people standing in line to vote in the presidential election, in Miami. There’s always grousing about people who don’t bother to vote. But look at it another way: An estimated 133 million Americans will cast ballots in Tuesday’s election. That’s about 6 in 10 eligible adults. Some will persevere despite long lines, pressing personal burdens or the devastation left by Superstorm Sandy. Why do they do it? It’s not because any one voter will decide the contest between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Depending on which state they live in, the odds of casting a deciding vote for president are somewhere between 1 in a million and essentially zero. (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky, File)

  • FILE - This Oct. 29, 2012 file photo shows people standing in line to vote during early voting for the presidential election, in Miami. One week before a close election, superstorm Sandy has confounded the presidential race, halting early voting in many areas, forcing both candidates to suspend campaigning and leading many to ponder whether the election might be postponed. It could take days to restore electricity to all of the more than 8 million homes and businesses that lost power when the storm pummeled the East Coast. That means it’s possible that power could still be out in some states on Election Day _ a major problem for areas that rely on electronic voting machines. (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky, File)

The cover of the latest issue of New York magazine offers a powerful glimpse of Manhattan during Hurricane Sandy. Post-hurricane conditions sent the magazine, along with other media organisations in the city, scrambling to get the news out this week. New York editors wrote: "The easiest part of a harried three days came Friday around noon, when we met to settle on the cover. A photograph taken by Iwan Baan on Wednesday night, showing the Island of Manhattan, half aglow and half in dark, was the clear choice, for the way it fit with the bigger story we have tried to tell here about a powerful city rendered powerless."
