Baby Boom at Gulf Breeze Zoo

GULF BREEZE, Fla The Gulf Breeze Zoo is experiencing a baby boom.

Since October, the zoo has welcomed several babies, including a hippo, two kangaroos, two bongos and a giraffe.

The zoo's youngest animal is Gamba, a giraffe born Nov. 10. He's grown more than 2 feet since his birth and is beginning to eat whole foods.

Curator Tenielle Welch says Cooper, the hippo, was born in early October. And two joeys, also born in October, are in the kangaroo exhibit. Two bongos were born a month apart, in October and November.

Next up is a baby zebra, expected in four to five months.

After that Welch says no more babies are on the horizon.
