Shani the Giraffe, one of the Sacramento Zoo’s most popular residents, gave birth to a healthy female calf on Sunday afternoon, the zoo announced Monday. Zookeepers had noted signs of the impending birth on Jan. 18, so Shani was moved into the maternity stall for monitoring. The calf was born Jan. 22 at 12:28 p.m.
