Today is a special day at Taronga Western Plains Zoo as our oldest Giraffe, Andrea turns 24. Andrea is the oldest of three generations of Giraffe which are all on exhibit together at the Zoo.

Andrea is good natured and enjoys meeting people. She is always one of the first to come over for the Giraffe encounter.

Today we organised a special birthday treat for Andrea with mini fruit muffins, some slices of bread, carrot and apples, which are her favourite. It's like her chocolate!

Andrea is one of 12 Giraffe at Taronga Western Plains Zoo which will hopefully increase with a number of mums expecting before the end of the year.
