After two decades of absence – previously giraffes lived at the Riga Zoo in 1972-79 – these gracious animals are back in town! Four adult males of Rothschild subspecies – eight-year old Pik and Periscope, four-year old Usmi and three-year old Kimi – now all live in a newly built, comfortable and spacious Giraffe House.
