Marilyn, one of the reticulated giraffes at the Memphis Zoo, gave birth while on exhibit late Monday afternoon. The female calf, is officially a Leap Year baby! This is a significant birth for reticulated giraffes, as there are less than an estimated 8,000 left in the wild. It is Marilyn's 7th baby. (©Karen Pulfer Focht)
