Twin giraffe surprise at Natural Bridge Zoo

Posted: Updated:
Natural Bridge, Virginia -

Twin giraffes were born at the Natural Bridge Zoo Friday morning.

"We're really excited around here" said Charissa Sangster who works at Natural Bridge Zoo.

The male and female twins were conceived naturally and it was a complete surprise according to Sangster.

"Her getting pregnant was rather odd because she was older" said Sangster. "We've been monitoring her and thought she just had one big baby, but it was a complete surprise that it was twins." 

There are about five other giraffes at the zoo. 

A vet came out earlier to check them out and they are doing fine.
