“Ingrid” was born Friday, April 8 at 9:40 am in the Bernard Osher Foundation Giraffe Barn at SF Zoo. She stood up and took her first steps within 30 minutes of birth. When she was born, she was about 6’ 3” and 150 pounds and she’s growing like a weed! She’s already about twice her birth weight. June 17, 2016
