Here come the girls to the zoo

THERE are two new faces settling in at Colchester Zoo today.

THERE are two new faces settling in at Colchester Zoo today.

Reticulated giraffes Lili and Isha arrived at the zoo yesterday all the way from the Czech Republic and are the first females to be resident.

They are currently only 14-months-old and will be joined later in the year by a reticulated male to form the first ever breeding group of giraffes at the zoo.

The pair have now been mixed with Koife, Edmund and Century - Colchester Zoo's three male giraffes, and have been attracting plenty of attention as they are about half the size of Edmund and Koife, the two largest males.
