Visitors to the Bannerghatta Biological Park (BBP) near Bengaluru will soon get to see a giraffe ‘couple’. A lonely female giraffe named Gowri has finally got a male partner.
The male giraffe, named Yadunandan, aged around one year and five months, was shifted from Mysuru Zoo to BBP on Friday after getting approval from the Central Zoo. BBP’s female giraffe, aged around 4 years, was also acquired from Mysore Zoo.
Mysuru Zoo has 7 giraffes and agreed to a long-pending request from BBP for a male companion for its female resident.
BPP authorities said both the giraffes are responding positively towards each other.
