Another giraffe was born at Artis zoo in Amsterdam. The baby giraffe came into the world on Wednesday night. Zookeepers discovered him on Thursday morning and are delighted, the zoo announced.

According to Artis, this baby giraffe is a colt and already drunk from his mother. This is the mother giraffe's fifth young and brings the total number of giraffes at the zoo up to 10.

Earlier this month another baby giraffe was earlier this month, but died a few days later because it was unable to suckle. The zookeepers and a vet tried to feed the giraffe with a bottle or get it to drink from another giraffe, but it was to no avail.
