3. Her favourite snack is...
Giraffes are herbivores and they spend 80% of their time eating. They can eat over 60kg of leaves and twigs in one day! Their long, strong tongues help them strip the leaves from branches. At Wellington Zoo, they also feed giraffes lucerne hay and pellets. Their favourite treats are carrots, lettuce and kale.
Nia has branched out from her milk-only diet and now enjoys browsing on her favourite food, pōhutukawa leaves.
4. She's got her own nursery
The giraffe house is specifically designed for giraffes. They can choose to be together or take some time away from each other. The bedrooms are heated to keep them warm and there is a quiet room which has heated walls where they can recover from illness or injury.
As Nia is still very young, she spends a lot of time in the nursery. The best time to catch her grazing in the habitat is in the morning.
