Many happy returns, Max!

Our giraffe bull turns 12 today – but that’s not the only reason to congratulate him!

Max is the only giraffe in Europe who has been trained to wear a halter on its head. A mini audio device inside the halter allows biologist Dr Anton Baotic to record the sounds that Max makes – hopefully leading to a better understanding of the behaviour of giraffes in their natural habitat.
