Desi

Desi is a 10-foot-tall male reticulated giraffe born on September 10, 2010 at the St. Louis Zoo. He arrived at the Oregon Zoo when he was two. Desi made the big move to Portland in an extra-tall trailer equipped with a video camera so keepers could make sure he was safe inside. Once here, he spent his first month adjusting to his new home. Gradually, they have been introducing Desi to his new companions — Bakari and Riley, as well as smaller animals, such as ground hornbills, that share space with giraffes in the outdoor Africa Savanna habitat.
