Most babies measuring 5ft would be
considered big, but newborn giraffe,
Margaret, at Chester Zoo, UK
is seen as unusually small for her species.

She is one of the smallest giraffes
ever born at Chester Zoo
but pint-sized Margaret will soon be
an animal to look up to.

Little Margaret,
who is the first female Rothschild giraffe
born at the zoo,
is being hand-reared by her dedicated keepers.

The End
