Miles

Welcome, Miles!

The Greenville Zoo welcomed a new resident to the zoo family last week. His name is Miles and he is a seven-year-old male Masai giraffe. Miles was born on January 30, 2009 at the Houston Zoo, where he was hand-raised by the zoo staff. Earlier this year, the Giraffe Species Survival Program recommended that Miles be transferred to the Greenville Zoo.
 
Miles must first undergo a 30-day quarantine period before he is allowed to share the exhibit with Autumn and Tatu – a practice the zoo employs for all new residents. "Miles is settling in well, and while he was hesitant to enter the barn at first, once he saw Autumn, he went right in," says zoo administrator Jeff Bullock. “He is much taller than we expected and has some of the longest legs I have ever seen on a giraffe.”  
 
The Greenville Zoo staff will spend the next few weeks getting Miles accustomed to his new home and helping him get acquainted with his new routine. In the meantime, you can view him on the Giraffe Cam sponsored by Mark V. Muncy, DMD.
