Giraffes turn heads

• While Perth’s zookeepers are waiting excitedly for a now overdue baby giraffe, they’re getting ready for the big day with the help of Fremantle sculptor Greg James. His sculpture of two giraffes turned a few heads as it made its way from his J-Shed studio up to the zoo this week, where it will take pride of place. The giraffe calf, which will be the zoo’s 10th, was expected late winter, but with a 15-month gestation period it can be a little tricky to call. It’s parent Kitoto and Armani’s second, with the first born in March last year.
