The Planckendael Zoo in Mechelen, north of Brussels celebrates the birth of a new and welcomed beauty! And it happened on the super romantic day, February 14. Remarkably, the cute little giraffe has a spot in the shape of a heart on the buttock.

This new savannah resident was born in the early morning.
