A baby giraffe of the rare Okapi breed was born in the Dvůr Králové nad Labem zoo in the Hradec Králové region late on Wednesday night. The animal is the second okapi to be born in the zoo, which is the only one in the Czech Republic that breeds these rare animals. The first specimen had been born in September 2008. The zoo is broadcasting live footage of the okapi baby on the web pages of Czech Radio.
