Oakland Zoo Gets Cuter

Oaklanders’ hearts melted into little warm puddles of goo when they learned that directors of the Oakland Zoo have acquired a new … baby … giraffe! According to KPIX, the lanky herbivore’s name is Mabusu (“kisses” in Swahili) and likes peanut butter. If that weren’t joyous enough, we get to read the following sentence: “Mabusu is a recommended match for the female giraffes at the Oakland Zoo by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Giraffe Management Program.” And he didn’t even have to post a Craigslist personal.
