The as yet unnamed new-born giraffe calf is 1.75m tall, slightly smaller then Quasmi, the giraffe calf born at Planckendael in February. She is a female.
The animal park is inviting the public to suggest a name via its Facebook page. All the animals that are born at Planckendael this year will be given a name beginning with the letter Q.
The giraffes in Planckendael are of a type that is very similar to an endangered species of giraffe in Niger, of which there are only around 150 that remain. Planckendael assists in a breeding programme for the giraffes and also helps the local community.
