Her name is Margaret: cute as can be !

Her eyes are beautiful. Most babies measuring 5 ft 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 first calf for six-year-old mum Fay, Margaret, who was born two weeks early, tipped the scales at just 34 kilos (75 lbs) and is a mere 5 ft tall.

Tim Rowland, team leader of the Giraffes section, said: 'Margaret is one of the smallest giraffe calves we have ever seen. Fay isn't the largest of giraffes and Margaret was also early, which might go some way to explaining her size. 'Margaret was having difficulty suckling, so our keeping team are now hand-rearing her.'

Beautiful creature and I have to say she reminded me of the Timpson's shoe shop on Grange Rd back in the 70's, they used to have a big stuffed toy one in there smile Does anyone else remember it too?

It would be even more gorgeous if the pic was taken in the wild and not in a captive situation for mans profit and pleasure.
