Three months ago, a male baby giraffe, Huanhuan, was born at the Dalian Forest Zoo.

Born with a height of 1.8m, it has since grown to 2.1m tall.
Not long after its birth, Huanhuan had been bottle-fed and meticulously cared by breeders because the mother giraffe was not able to take care of the baby. Like all responsible "parents," breeders would sanitize milk bottles and warm goat milk to the proper temperature before feeding the giraffe.

After a period of time, Huanhuan was able to eat alfalfa leaves after the "meal" and weaned step by step.
If it is a good day, "parent" breeders would take Huanhuan for a walk in the garden, getting it close to nature.
