GULF BREEZE, Fla. (AP) - A Florida Panhandle zoo is welcoming two baby giraffes, born about a month apart.

Northwest Florida Daily News (https://goo.gl/H43NB0 ) reports that a male named Gibson was born Aug. 2 at Gulf Breeze Zoo, followed by Kelly on Sept. 6. The latest arrival, a female named Kelly, was born just five weeks later on Sept. 6.

Following the births, the zoo now has five giraffes. Kelly’s mother, Kenya, is a 7-year-old reticulated giraffe, and Gibson’s mother is a 14-year-old female named Gabby.

Visitors can already view and feed the new babies.
