Hellabrunn Zoo is delighted to welcome Baridi, a two-year-old female giraffe, who arrived last week from Cologne Zoo. She wasted no time in exploring her new home, moving around the giraffe enclosure with a self-assured attitude.
Last week Monday, Baridi the giraffe arrived in Munich. Her arrival was slightly delayed by the evening traffic. The elegant, rather dark reticulated giraffe spent her first night in her new stall, which although separate from the other female giraffes, allowed her to have eye contact with them.
The Munich Zoo Hellabrunn was founded in 1911 as the first Geo-zoo worldwide. The animals live according to their geographic distribution in complex communities.
Hellabrunn’s Species Conservation Center is a unique forum where zoo visitors can access an amazing amount of information about the zoo’s many projects.
