An Update on Ellie the Giraffe

It's been two months since Ellie the Giraffe arrived at Perth Zoo after an epic four day road trip from Australia Zoo in Queensland.

Senior Keeper, Kaelene McKay looks back at the 4510km journey, and how Ellie has settled in with fellow giraffes, Armani and Kitoto.

Despite her small size and sweet nature, young Ellie is very confident and has quickly adjusted to life on the west coast.
