New Photos of our baby Giraffe! With other animals thrown in.....

  1. Lewis is growing like a weed. He is 19 days old and already weighs 193 lbs. He is about 6' 9". Here he is taking his bottle from me. He is fed about 7 times a day, 1.75 quarts per feeding. This will increase in the next couple of days. He is going to be a very large boy!!!
