Meet Penelope!

Thank you to the thousands who came to Como over MEA weekend and voted! Penelope received 43% of the vote!

Penelope born Tuesday morning, October 2, is the 8th calf born to Daisy and the 22nd giraffe birth at Como Zoo in the last 24 years. Como’s current herd consists of Daisy, Clover, Skeeter (father) and Penelope. This is Skeeter’s 6th offspring, 5 of which have been female.

 The giraffe is available for sponsorship. Sponsoring an animal is a unique way to help Como Zoo with its wildlife conservation efforts. Donations support enhanced habitats and efforts to maintain the best care possible for the animals at Como Zoo. For more information visit:
