Potoka Giraffe
has a curious, sweet, and laid-back personality, and this one-year-old reticulated giraffe is a favorite among the keeper staff at Habitat Africa! The Savannah. (He seems to think keepers are part of his herd! He enjoys receiving treats and scratches from them.) An adoption of Potoka is the perfect gift for someone in your life with the same personality. Just purchase one of the package options below.
