Giraffe Krishnaraja dead at Mysuru Zoo

Mysuru, November 25:- Giraffe Krishnaraja, which used to be one of the major attractions at the world famous Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens at Ittigegudu in the city, died today in the morning.

It is said that the tallest animal was not eating properly since the last few days and had become weak.

He was born to Henry and Honey in 1996, and was the fourth calf born to his parents.

Krishnaraja’s parents were from a German zoo in 1988. Honey gave birth to nine offsprings. Of that, the first three died. However, Krishnaraja, the fourth calf, survived and was hand-reared at the zoo.  Krishnaraja is the father of eight calves.
