Motherly love

A Rothschild giraffe cub named Sara explores the enclosure with her mother, Juji, in a zoo in Hanover, Germany on Nov. 24. The baby giraffe will grow eight centimeters per month and double its height within two year's time. Rothschild giraffes are the second most endangered giraffe subspecies with only a few hundred members left.
