Natural Bridge, VA - Virginia's Natural Bridge Zoo has two more members of its giraffe family after twins giraffes were born at the zoo!
Gabriella, a 22-year-old giraffe, gave birth to a male and a female around 2 a.m. Friday.
Zoo Owner and Director Karl Mogensen says they weren't expecting her to give birth since 22 is pretty old for a giraffe. He says twins are extremely rare for giraffes, and only a few zoos in the world have them.
The female is about 80 pounds and the male is 100 pounds and they both stand about six feet tall.
Mogensen says the public will be able to meet them in a couple of days at the zoo.
The twins don't have names yet, and the zoo owners would love your help coming up with names. If you have an idea, you can email the names to firstname.lastname@example.org.
